PLANS, NO LIMIT— MORE OF THE SAME 



Pomeroy 
Jazz At 

by PETES MONROE 

"A Living History of Jazz" 
featuring the sixteen piece band 
of Herb Pomeroy will be pre- 
sented by the Concert Associa- 
tion Wednesday night at 8 p.m. 
in the Cage. 

I oieman Hawkins, a gui It 
saxophonist, will be ft.-atu.red. 
and John McLellan, jazz critic 
from Boston 'a WHDH, will nar- 
rate the show. 

The program will trace the 
development of jazz from- tradi- 
tional-type blues to the latest 
"far-out" tangents. 

Herb Pomeroy is a BdSton 
protege and a graduate of tin- 
Stan Kenton band. After land- 
ing a job at the Stable, the 
Boston jazz club, he went on to 
build a six piece combo centered 
around Varty Haroutunian. Joe 
Gorden, Ray Santisi and Alex 
Cirini. 

N'.av, with a sixteen piece 
band, Pomeroy is enjoying the 
success he worked for so long. 

The band's prestige in jazz- 
land was greatly boosted after 
its recent engagement at the 
Carousel Theatre in Framing- 
ham on the same program with 
George Shearing and his quintet. 

The Concert Association anti- 
cipates full campus approval of 
this program in jazz. 

WMUA will hold a special In- 
terview with Herb Pomeroy 
tonight at 7:00.

by SALLY KANE 

"Better if possible . . ." stated President Mather in 
his address at the Opening Convocation yesterday, before 
i large gathering of students and faculty. Preceding the 
gddreaa was an invocation by Rabbi Louis Ruchames, a 
welcome by Susan Harrington '69 and the recognition of 
Phi Kappa Phi Scholars by Arthur Levine. 
said Mather, 



"Our progress," 
is noteworthy. All the aims of 
the graduating class of 1952 
have been realized, and then 
some . . . The autonomous posi- 
tion of the ten colleges, schools, 
and divisions has been strength- 
ened by reorganization of the 
faculty . . . Also our College of 
Arts and Sciences is a reality, 
not a dream ... In the spring 
of 10.")? the Faculty Senate was 
founded. 

"The University is deeply ap- 
preciative for recognition by 
His Excellency Gov. Foster 
Furcolo and Our far-sighted leg- 
islature for the record operat- 
ing budget approved June 27, 
l l J58. 

"The progress in plant, pro- 
gram, and policies of the past 
five years is not overgrown with 
ivy of either the plant or tradi- 
tion varieties . . . We have spent 
no tax money on grim gothic 
gargoyles. 

"A University is only as good 
as its library," affirmed Mather, 
stressing the need for more and 
better hooks for the University 
library. "Students should not be 
compelled to waste precious time 
in visiting neighboring campuses 
for the purposes of getting nec- 
essary reference material." 

Mather pointed out that in 
1953 $23,000 was spent OB books, 
while in I960 $100,000 will be 

spent oil books 

Expansion Necessary 

"The in< ll igniticanl con- 
tinuing poliey of this university 
is EXPANSION. We must ex- 
pand to nieet the needs of Com- 
petent students who are of lim- 
ited needs. We cannot ape such 
colleges as Amherst, Tufts, Wil- 
liams, or Harvard where enroll* 

meiits are limited by tuition, M 
dowments, and gifts. We are 
proud of them M neighlxus, but

Intcrlibrary Center 
To Move To UMass 

The Hampshire luterlibi ai y 
(enter will be moved here, on 

completion of the bow addition 

to Goodell Libray, stuted 

I'm h|. nt M.ii !,, i yeeterda/i 

Currently located at Ml. Ho|- 
yoke, the Hampshire inti-rlihrary 
Center is a cooperative library 
venture of the l' diversity, Am- 
herst College, Smith College, 

and Mil Roijroke. The §a coilegea 

pooled their r< to set up 

n collection of scholarly periodi 
call and expensive research sets 
with the 'dea of setting up a 
more complete file of these 
■ holarly journals in this area. 
This ser\iee was primarily net 
up for faculty and graduate stu- 
dents rather than undergrade 
at, although books can be 
ired on interlibrary loan. 



numbers of able Massachusetts 
youth with limited means . . ." 

In summary, "We will strive 
policy wise to be like ourselves 
rather than like anyone else. And 
through our own community of 
scholars we will hope to achieve 
the reputation of being distinc- 
tive for accomplishments greater 
than just being different." 

The second policy issue is the 
continuation of a low annual tui- 
tion rate for Massachusetts res- 
idents. "The commonwealth does 
not owe anyone an education . . . 
What the commonwealth does 
owe its citizenry is an opportun- 
ity for higher education that will 
enable students with limited 
means, but intellectual potential 
and motivation, to realize that 
potential to the utmost." 

"We will have an uninformed, 
sub-standard population in thia 
state if we "pat a falsely devel- 
oped price tag on public higher 
educational policy in this com- 
monwealth. From past history 
and events we can clearly deduce 
that the chief contributor to hum- 
an welfare always has been and 
always will be education." 

For Scholarships 

"The last Hoard of Trustees 
meeting approved the recommen- 
dation of the administration that 
the revenues from vending ma- 
chines in the amount of the | 
centage schedule established for 
dormitory social funds be as- 
signed after July 1, 11)58 to the 
general University Scholarship 
funds." 

While on the subject, Mather 
■aid that only four of 26 Barber 
athletic award recipients last 
yea i were eliminated for academ- 
ic reasons. These students were 
given no breuks in curriculum 
and no courses in "Early Morn- 
ing Bird Calls" or "Aztec Basket 
Waving."

VAN METER 

Ralph Albert Van Meter, pres- 
ident of UMass from 194S to 
1964, passed away this summer. 

Concerning education, Van 
Meter held that ". . . op|>ortuni- 
ties in higher education should 
not be fixed by color of the skin; 
nor by religion . . nor by the place 
of residence, nor by sex, nor by 
financial status of the parents, 
but by capacity for learning 
only . . ." 

His administration saw the es- 
tablishment of a College of Arte 
and Science and the inception of 
three new schools; business ad- 
ministration, engineering, and 
nursing. At this time the State 
College became the University of 
Massachusetts, and the expan* 
sion program was begun.

Keep In Step 



You as a student at the U of M are part 
of a fast growing and changing institution. 
The university enrollment is now larger than 
it has ever peen. New buildings are constant- 
ly being completed and planned. Both cur- 
riculum and policy are in a transitional stage 
— changing to keep pace with the require- 
ments of a growing institution. 

As the most important segment in the de- 
velopment here you must also progress and 
develop. During these, your college years, 
you are in a position to become culturally, 
intellectually, and socially proficient. Culti- 
vation of the mind should be your highest 
goal. 

These college years are perhar>- :*>e most 
formative years of your life. Yo, ^we it to 
yourself to take advantage of the opportun- 
ity open to you. You must learn to think log- 
ically and intelligently. By setting and ad- 
hering to high standards you will be doing 
justice to yourself and to the university. 

We of the Colhffinn wish all of you, 
whtthcr you arc a freshman or upperclass- 
man, the best of luck in the coming school 
year and hope it is both profitable and en- 
joyable. 



For Better Relations — 

The 1958-59 school year has started oft 
on the right foot. In his all-encompassing re- 
port, President Mather yesterday reviewed 
the successes, goals, and problems of the uni- 
versity. This report deserves our warm 
praise not only for its contents, but also for 
its effect in bringing the student body closer 
to the workings and problems of the often- 
times remote administration. 

The success of the President's first five 
years are clearly visible in the new buildings. 
More than that, however, the university has 
changed from the derisively termed "aggie 
college" to a respected state university. 

In regard to the contents of the report, 
we certainly agree with Dr. Mather, that a 
need for increased faculty salaries is one of 
the most pressing problems. We will not 
go into further detail on this question, how- 
ever, until the annual budget is presented to 
the Legislature. Concerning objectives, no 
one will dispute the administration's goal of 
making education available to people of all 
classes. One of the highest ideals of democ- 
racy is equal opportunity. In this era of 
$1,000 plus tuitions, only a low-tost, state- 
supported university can effectively furnish 
this equal opportunity. 

Again, thank you for your report, Pres- 
ident Mather: we wekome more like it. 

T.M. 



Greetings From Mather Chaplains 9 Comer 




A warm "welcome" to new campus citizens and "welcome back" 
to all of you who spent your summer outside Amherst! We all appre- 
ciate this fresh opportunity of sharing a campus community for an- 
other academic year — the serious and rewarding challenge of search 
for the knowledge, truth, ideas, and progress inherent in the con- 
cept of university. I hope that the joint contribution of each student, 
faculty member, and staff member will preserve and advance our 
University, as worthy of that challenge. 

J. PAUL MATHER, President 

The President Speaks 

Man is the reasoning animal. For man there is no freedom as 
limitless as reason. For man may think on all things in silence and 
without action. The universe, as it is conceived or revealed to be, is an 
unlimited arena for the unfettered mind of man. But man is animate 
and articulate as well as reasoning. He speaks and acts as he thinks. 
He chains and fetters discriminating power of mind by deeds and 
work that show the bigotry, the prejudice, the dogma, the ignorance 
of men at any given moment in the passing eternity that is the life 
of man to man to man. 

In this is the seeming paradox of democracy — that man, reason- 
ing man, if moral, must be discriminating Rut not discriminatory. And 
the paradox is resolved by seeing that it is man's morality, his need 
fur va!ui>. his groping beyond the how, and what toward the why 
of life that distinguishes him from the unreasoning beast. 

The brotherhood we promote at the university is the morality of 
reason. It allows us to live and practice justice, amity, understanding, 
cooperation — all moral concepts — without minimizing or compromis- 
ing our individual beliefs. Brotherhood solves the paradox of democ- 
racy so that democracy will work. Brotherhood enables men of differ- 
ent races, religions, and creeds, to live and work together in peace, 
because it preserves the most precious right of true freedom — the 
right to individual reason and belief without group censure. 

It is not unreasonable or hard, then, to understand why the laws, 
restrictions, and regulations of society restrain men who violate this 
fre<>dom. License is generally, in practice, the violation of true broth- 
erhood. License is any failure of man to respect the dignity and no- 
bility of individual men. And liberty never becomes license when this 
responsibility is understood. 

I submit that man, as the reasoning animal, must compete to real- 
ize his greatest personal and spiritual potential. Whether he competes 
with himself and his past actions as he lives, or with the other mem- 
berg of Bociety, competition develops and accomplishes discriminating 
perspective, and moral behavior. Brotherhood, for me, is the morality 
of reason. Brotherhood is the accomplishment of group tolerance of 
individual belief and reason. Brotherhood is the universal idealistic 
goal ot the selfless rather than the selfish life, but always with full 
acceptance of responsibility. Brotherhood is the practical translation 
as we both live our lives and make our livings, of the infinite expecta-* 
tions of a God who made us "in His image and but little lower than 
the angels." 

J. Paul Mather

Policy On Letters 

As usual this year the Collegian welcomes letters to the editor. 
Any letters sent in should be typewritten and be as short as possible.

express their opinions on campus problems. The Ctttfgim is eagerly 
looking forward to your letters. For only through your criticism can

WMUA Tradition 

by JUDY MORRIS 

"Now we wish to dedicate this song, Some En- 
chanted Evening, to you wherever you may be, Miss 
•Enchanted Evening." 

With these words, Don Torres, announcer on 
WMUA's Crazy Rhythms show, closed a half hour 
tribute to a "special mysterious lady." More than 
just a tradition at WMUA, Miss Enchanted Evening 
represents a spirit oT understanding and encourage- 
ment. 

WMUA's custom of playing Sent* Enchanted 
Evinhnj every Friday evening as close to 10:30 p.m. 
had its origins some eight or nine years ago, when 
Frank Donovan first originated the request show, 
Crazy Rhythms. On his first shows, Donovan was 
discouraged because of the lack of requests. Then 
one evening he received an anonymous request for 
the song, 81mm Enchant, <\ Evening. Each succeed- 
ing week, Donovan received the same call, which 
served as an encouragement for him to continue with 
the program and ultimately make it a success. 

Yet, the identity of Miss Enchanted Evening, as 
the mysterious caller came to be known, remained 
her own secret, until she revealed herself to Dono- 
van when she invited him to her home for tea just 
before his graduation. At her request, he did not 
disclose her name to anyone. 

Phil Shepardson, now an announcer on Spring- 
field's Channel 22, became the new Crazy Rhythms 
announcer and maintained the Miss Enchanted Eve- 
ning tradition. Upon graduation he too learned her 

identity. 

The present announcer, Don Torres, did not havu 
to wait for graduation to discover her identity. Last 
spring Miss Enchanted Evening passed away. Her 
husband informed WMUA of her death, disclosing 
her name — Mrs. Helen Goodnow, a loved and ad- 
mired lady from Northampton. 

Although she was considered old by some, she 
understood and loved young people. Her favorite 
production, Soutfi Pacific, from which her song 
comes, lends further evidence of her liking for the 
light-hearted and vibrant. 

During her long illness, WMUA's request show 
remained a bright spot in her life. Speaking of 
Miss Enchanted Evening, Don Torres said, "We 
have done little for her; she has done everything 
for us." 

Mrs. Helen Goodnow's memory will not fade. 
It will live on as the spirit of WMUA's "special 
my-t. rious" lady, Miss Enchanted Evening.

The Campus Beat 



by ALA 

Everything is hack to normal 
for better or for worse. .Books 
have replaced beanies; the 
Hatch is once again swarmed 
with students and stray dogs; 
and the veterans are broke after 
their semi-annual trek to the 
bookstore. 

Freshmen women were the 
center of attraction last Tuesday 
night at the seventh annual 
Registration Dance. Over 15U0 
siudent3 danced to the music of 
Paul Waldron in the SU Ball- 
room and Commonwealth Room. 

The proceeds from this dance 
are used in a fund to aid student 
function*. Part of this fund is 
used to help students in finan- 
cial difficulties; the remainder is 
set aside for scholarships. Aid- 
ing Mrs. Robert Lentilhorn and 
Mrs. John Conlon in organizing 
the dance were representatives 
from Adelphia, Mortarboard, 
Maroon Key and Scrolls. 

Fred Topor, Station Manager

day, Sept. 15, at 6:45 p.m. Any 
student interested in having his 
questions answered directly by 
the President should place the

OPENING CONVOCATION . . . 

(Continued from page 1) 

"One of the main PROBLEMS of a university our 
size is Communications. Through speeches, legisla- 
tive hearings, press releases, and publications we are 
attempting to inform the public about the existence 
of the university and its future possibilities . . . 

"Another problem is that of increased fiscal sup- 
port that will be necessary in the future. 'How do 
we get people to realize that the current Mass. tax 
structure will not support our expansion program 
unless other types of expenditure are curtailed?'", 
queried Mather . . . "And let it not be said by any 
reasonable person that this state with the ninth 
highest per capita income is so poverty stricken 
as to be unable or unwilling to develop the precious 
asset of an educated citizenry." 

Campus Problems 

Mather further stated our most pressing campus 
problems as (1) need for increased faculty salaries 
(2) increased library book appropriations (3) state 
support by direct budget appropriation (4) increased 
appropriations for technical, clerical, and support 
MTV lee staff (5) some kind of financing that would 
enable fraternities and sororities to get out of ob- 
solete non-fraternity resident subsidized facilities 
and into more wholesome physical surroundings. 

"I don't consider Intellectual Apathy a problem 
here. If the intellects respresented in this assembly 
and throughout the campus are apathetic, nothing 
but your own personal and undivided interest in the 
'good life' of the universal search for truth will 
change things." 

The president aptly summarized plans for the 
next five years for the Amherst campus as "More 
of same, better if possible, with primary emphases 
on people, efficiency in the use of what we have, and 
less emphasis on bricks, mortar, and equipment." 

Mather also added that the goal of 10,000 highly 
qualified students set in 1953 for 1965 is a "level or 
target" and not a "ceiling or limit" on the Amherst 
campus. 

Realizing that there are many facets to our 
American way of life and means of livelihood, 
Mather stated that, "The society which scorns ex- 
cellence in plumbing because plumbing is a humble 
activity and tolerates shoddiness- in philosophy be- 
cause it is an exalted activity will have neither 
good plumbing nor good philosophy. Neither its 
pipes nor its theories will hold water." 



Opportunity Knocks 

Want to be "on the inside" about campus doings? 
Want to dazzle your friends with your ability to go 
without sleep, your ability to lose your temper yea 
times daily, your ability to risk expulsion for daring 
to speak out publicly against the injustices and 
cruelties at THE University? 

The Collegian is looking for persons with these 
qualities. Reporters, editorial writers, photogra- 
phers, sports writers, copy editors, cartoonists, typ- 
ists, business staff people — we need them all! 

Experience is not. necessary. We train you. After 
all, that is one of the purposes of an activity such 
as ours — it serves as an educational opportunity. 

You may sign up immediately for positions de- 
sired by dropping up to the office on the 2nd floor 
of the StuU. Now remember, when you come in, 
don't let .he groans, the racked cries, the hysterical 
howls frighten you away. They only belong to frus- 
trated editors snowed under by work requiring an 
intrepidity somewhat similar to that of a Persian 

tax collector 
making the 
rounds of ancient 
Athens. 



THERES ROOM 
FOR YOU 



If no one is in 
t'.e office, simply 
leave your name, 
address, and the 
type of work you 
want, in the Man- 
aging Ed i tor's 
box. We will con- 
tact you as soon 
as possible. Word 
about the regular 
Collegian train- 
ing program, to 
commence at the 
end of September, will be published next week, , 

So be on the team! Join the Collegian, the most 
un-static thing about the U. of M. See your material 
in print. Choose an activity offering satisfaction in 
a job well done, a chance to serve your college com- 
munity, and a chance for advancement. Be enter- 
prising. Help keep your University alive. Be alive 
yourself. Like the fellar in the poster says, we want 
YOU on the Collegian.

Workshop Held 

Mr. Edward Cynarski, copy 
editor on the Springfield Union 
and a former editor of the Col- 
Uuinn, will conduct a copy edit- 
ing workshop in connection with 
Prof. Arthur Musgrave's jour- 
nalism seminar this semester. 

Mr. Cynarski, an honor stu- 
dent at the University, was grad- 
uated in 1949. He holds an M.A. 
in history from Columbia Uni- 
versity, and has been on the 
Union since May 1951. 

He is one of the more than 30 
Collegian editors who have gone 
into professional journalism in 
the past several years. He is also 
a member of the Publishing 
Board of the Collegian, having 
replaced Mr. Avrom Romm last 
year when Mr. Romm left the 
Union to become managing edi- 
tor of a daily newspaper in Mid- 
dletown, N. Y. 

Mr. Cynarski's copy editing 
workshop will meet once a week 
for six weeks, Prof. Musgrave 
said. Sessions devoted to an 
analysis of the Collegian will be 
open to any Collegian members. 

Seniors in Prof. Musgrave's 
seminar work some Saturday 
afternoons on the copy desk of 
the I'nion, and last semester two 
journalism students, Frank 
Sousa and Cris Ivusic, were 
hired by the Springfield news- 
papers after their graduation in 
June.

REDMEN TO FACE 
RUGGED SCHEDULE 



by HAL DUTTOX 



A week from Saturday the 
1958 edition of the Redmen will 
be unfolded against the Univer- 
sity of Maine at Orono. Things 
are looking rosy for Charley 
O'Rourke and company for the 
first time since he took over the 
reins at UMass. 

As he heads into his seventh 
year as head coach, the former 
BC great can show only a poor 
16-28-3 record. However, things 
are about to change as the first 
batch of President Mather's 
"Canteen Kids" put on varsity 
uniforms along with seasoned 
veterans. The schedule is tougher 
than ever, but in these quarters 
it is felt that the long drought is 
about over and better days are 
ahead for UMass football for- 
tunes. 

About the Opposition 

Maine returns to the Redmen 
slate for the first time since 1945. 
BU will make its initial appear- 
ance at Alumni Field before 
meeting powerful Navy at home. 
Oh yes, way back in 1892 Mass. 
Aggie beat the Terriers 62-0. 

A shifting of dates in our 
schedule finds us at Brandeis for 
the second year in a row. UConn 
will be out to even up the series 
and spoil another Homecoming in 
October. Rhode Island shared the 
conference crown with the Husk- 
ies a year ago, and as some of 
their soph sensations have aged 
in experience they can't help but 
be better. 

Northeastern returns here this 



year. The flu ruled them off the 
slate last year. The Blue Hens of 
Delaware make the::* initial ap- 
pearance as a Redmen opponent 
at Newark in November. New 
Hampshire will ring down the 
curtain once again. We should 
have beaten them a year ago 
(7-7). This year we will. 

YanCon Outlook 

A year ago Connecticut and 
Rhode Island tied for the crown. 
The Huskies haven't been beaten 
in Bean Pot play since 1955. The 
Rams played them to a scoreless 
tie last season. Rhody has two 
All-Con backs in tow this season. 
The Redmen "Canteen Kids" 
aren't experienced yet and the 
veterans will have to hold the 
fort for a few games. New 
Hampshire had only one senior 
last year and should be greatly 
improved. Maine has six starters 
back in the fold along with sev- 
eral seasoned reserves. Vermont 
is out of contention with only 
one Con foe on their schedule. 

In summary, the conference is 
stronger in all ports as it heads 
into the twelfth season of play. 
Look for UConn and Rhode Is- 
land to battle it out for the top 
spot. Maine and New Hampshire 
are both well seasoned, but watch 
the Redmen once the sophs have 
a couple of games under their 
belts. Any of these clubs could 
make the jump up to the leaders. 
Vermont is several notches below 
the rest of the league. 



GRID STAFF 
ADDS TWO 



Not <>nly does Charlie O'Rourke 
have new depth in his foothall 
team, but also he has added to 
his coaching staff this season.

As the Redmen Football Team 
ended a week of double sessions 
and moved into single sessions 
in preparation for tlu season 
opener against Maine, Coach 
Charlie O'Rourke was filled with 
what he termed "reserved opti- 
mism''. 

The reason for this feeling is 
the great depth of the club. For 
the first time in many a year, 
fifty players reported for fall 
practice. 

Green Squad 

The squad is predominantly a 
sophomore one although then/ 
are ten juniors and sewn s. mors. 
Tlie could be tenued a 

green one, but I tin sophs 

are veterans of last year's grt at 
hman team which only- 
dropped OM game and that DM 
was by a single TD. 

Team Wei I -Conditioned 
• Depth will be the big feat 
of the P.CiK Redmen, but another 
factor feo he reckoned with will 
he the good physical condition 
of the team. The p> rformanee 
of the tOgm in last week's heavy 
double session worko on- 



strated this fact. 

The depth chart looks well 

balanced with experienced 
players spread around well. Only 
two positions are question marks. 
There are no ends returning and 
only versatile utility lineman 
John Montosi has had any 
experience at the center spot. 

There are plenty of good 
prospects to till tbp gaps on the 
flanks with sophomores John 
Burgess, John Champagne, and 
Dav< Swepaon along with Junior- 
Ralph Maloney figured as the 
outstanding choices to Hi for 

the starting spot. 

O'Rourke i.s hoping that sopho- 
mores Yin CaptttO) J !' 
kowicz, ami Men Fernandes can 
combine to handle the center* 

■lot thus releasing Ifi ni n* for 

full time duty at his regular shot 
as tackle. 

All other positions are <! 
in talent. With such an array 
of players, O'Rourke should bo 
;.hle to fill all slots without re- 
ii ing names as forced 

to do last year. 



Booters Need Scorer 

by PETE TEMPLE 



Coach Larry Hriggs this week 
I 30 candidates for the 
varsity soccer squad, including 
1€ returnees from last year's 
team. Headed by captain Bernie 
Goclowski, this squad will in- 
clude seven starters from the 
team fielded a year ago. These 
include: Dick Williams, goalie; 
George Steinberg, fallback; Hen 
Doherty. halfhack; and line men 
Paul Mailman, Hilly Harris, and 
John Poignand. 

acli Hriggs feels that if he 
can remedy two important prob- 
lems the booters will have a 
good chance for a winning season. 
The problems are to get con- 
sistant performances from the 
players, and to find someone who 
can score. "If we can score three 

tttj here October 31. Their only 
away game will be November 7 
at Brown. The season will end 
here against the University of 
v Hampshire November 15. 



'is a game, we should win", 
said the coach, "but the problem 
il to get these three goals." 

Phil Grandchamn, last year's 
frosh star, appears to be the 
scorer on the squad and 
should start at center-forward. 
If he does not live up to expecta- 
tions, Andy Psilakis or Nick 
Bazos stand in line for the 
portant position. 

Others who are expected to 
see action are: Uttermen Grant 
Bowman, Dick Schofield, Jim 
Rosenberg and Fred Walker; and 
Fred losway, Kd Robinson, Jack 
.V vail, Larry Treadwell, Paul 
R • ■• |i l! i H twes, Fred 

Oilman, and Butch Worsen,

dict how the team will fare, but 
he did say, "We should hold our 
own against such teams as Coast 
Guard, Worcester, Clark* ajadj 
Tufts. If ve can have a .300

FROSH IN FRANTIC FRENZY 

AS UPPERCLASSMEN CRUISE 

by DON CROTEAU 



"Freshman registration was a 
mess," says Registrar Lanphear. 

The new system for freshman 
orientation and registration ini- 
tiated this year backfired as ter- 
rific bottlenecks formed during 
frosh registration. 

The mistake that caused the 
"mess" was made this summer 
during the frosh "weekend" pre- 
registrations. When the fresh- 
men made out their schedules, 
they failed to find out where 
their classes were going to be 
held. This presented the problem 
of supplying them with the in- 
formation at regular registration. 

This is to be corrected in the 
future, and the new frosh pro- 
gram should prove to be more 
successful. 

In contrast to the freshman 
registration the upperelass re- 
gistration took place right on 



schedule with no serious bottle- 
necks. 

Most students entered the 
cage at their assigned times and 
went through registration with- 
out a hitch. 

A few suggestions, were made 
to the registrar's office to im- 
prove the system. 

It was pointed out that there 
were not enough of the Sched- 
ules of Courses at each table 
to fully provide for the number 
of students using them. 

Another complaint was that 
some students had difficulty in 
finding their respective depart- 
ment tables because the signs 
were covered up by other stu- 
dents standing in front of the 
table. 

The registrar's office will wel- 
come any other comments on the 
registration program.

societies, and other organiza-

Operetta Guild Enacts 
'Damn Yankees 9 This Year 

One answer to the question: "When will the Yankees 
lose the pennant," will be offered this yvar hy the Univer- 
sity Operetta Guild with their production of Damn Yankcrs. 

This show, which had over 1000 performanc.s in New- 
York, is a modern version of the Faust story with Mr. 
Applegate as the man who can do anything. 



"The College Woman — Today, Tommorrow," will be 
the topic discussed by Miss Victoria Schuck at the annual 
"Who's Who" Convocation presented by the Women's Af- 
fairs Committee of the Senate which will be held at 11 a.m. 
Thursday, Sept. 18, in Bowker Auditorium. 

The purpose of the "Who's Who" Convocation is to in- 
troduce prominent women in 

Stanford University and is a 
professor of political science at 
Mount Holyoke College. Last 
spring she was appointed to the 
Board of Trustees of the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts by 
Governor Furculo.

Schuck has many accomplish- 
ments to her credit. She is con- 
sulting editor of the Encyclope- 
dia Britannica, and a member 
of the nominating committee of 
the American Political Science 
Association. 

Following the convocation, 
Miss Schuck will attend a 
luncheon with some of the stu- 
dent women leaders at the Stu- 
dent Union. 

Also from three-four p.m. in 
the Colonial Lounge of th«- Stu-

Pomeroy Speaks . . . The Campus Listen*- 

by PETER MONROE 

"We try to bring to life the 
as'tccts of jazz that we believe 
to be historically significant." 
These thoughts were expressed 
by Herb Pomeroy at a personal 
interview here on campus last 
Friday, Sept. 12. He was dis- 
cussing his unique production 
"A Living History of Jazz," 
which will be presented at the 
cage this Wednesday evening at 
8:00 p.m. 

Mr. Pomeroy was present at 
an interview in the Colonial 
Lounge in the Student Union 
at 3:00 p.m., and was later in- 
terviewed on a panel discussion 
which was broadcast over 
WMUA. Thia waa part of a 
"meet the campua" program 
made available by the Concert 
Association. 

Among those present at these 
intervicwo were Dr. Viaoant 
Rogers, Prof. Anthony Zaitz, 
Mitch Fisher, Norman Gage, 
and thia reporter. Mr. Pomeroy 
waa also introduced to many 
students interested in all 
schools of J ass. 

The Concert Aasociation 
wishes to announce that the 
student body will be admitted 
free of charge to thia concert 
aeries, but temporary I.D. cards 
will be necessary for admission. -*%•*• by Uoaare 1

What Is A Student? 

In attempting to answer the question 
"what is a student?" we encounter the dan- 
ger of looking for the answer by examining 
masses of students as they are presented to 
us in every day life. Here we become in- 
volved in a web of endless characterization 
which can only lead us to fruitless despair 
and never to even the possibility of a con- 
clusive statement. 

More fruitful, perhaps, it would be to 
look at the word "student" and analyze its 
meaning in terms of the individual human 
being. A student, of course, is one who 
studies, or more accurately, perhaps, one 
who is committed to study. Involved in such 
a commitment is an admission that one does 
not know all there in to know about reality, 
but that one can apprehend and make a part 
of oneself aspects of reality hitherto un- 
known. Involved more basically, perhaps, in 
the commitment is an assumption* that there 
is a reality outside of oneself, and that this 
reality can be apprehended by the mind. 

More specifically, an individual who en- 
ters the classroom system of education, com- 
mits hims« If to the concept that he is capable 
of being taught by another human being, 
and also acknowledges that this human be- 
ing may be able to give him insight into the 
techniques of grasping aspects of reality. 

Reduced to a basic definition, this la what 
is meant by the word "xti«1<nt" and the in- 
dividual who soya "I am a student" must be 
prepared to fulfil, the commitments he made 
when he assumed that title. 

Care should 1><> taken against synthesiz- 
ing a criterion of behavior from what one 
observes in other individual students. Each 
individual student takes upon himself the 
reaponaibility for what kind of student he is 
or will be. No attempt should be made to 
dans reaponaibility tor behavior merely be- 
cause it is observed in others. Ultimately 
SftCfl stud. Hit and more sijrnfirantly. each in- 
dividual will create for himself a definition 
uniquely his own. and ultimately, he must 
stand or fall on his own creation.

, • fa hum oj much as possible about 
fli)l ./,„,. , , , ■ gad the threat to WOfU i" nee. 

In April of last year I raised my \oice, together with others, to 
draw attention to the great danger of radioactive poisoning of the 
air and ISO earth, following tests with atomic bombs and hydrogen 
bombs. With others, I appealed to the nuclear powers to come to a 
workable agreement to stop the tests as soon as possible, at the same 
time declaring their genuine desire to renounce the use of nuclear 

weapons. 

At that time there appeared to be reasonable hope that this step 
would be taken. It was not. The negotiations in London two summers 
ago achieved nothing. The conference arranged by the United Nations 
in the autumn of last year suffered the same fate when the Soviet 
Union withdrew from the discussions. 

The question of nuclear arms control, however, cannot be put 
aside. Any discussions among the major nations will have to consider 

this problem. 

As a first step in any comprehensive plan for workable arms con- 
trol, the proposal for a cessation of nuclear tests has frequently been 

advanced. 

One might have thought that it would be comparatively simple 

for all those involved to agree on this first step. No nuclear power 

would have to sacrifice any of the atomic weapon* in its possession. 

The disadvantage of not being able to try out new bombs or nuclear 

devices would be the same for all. 

The United Statep and Great Britain have been reluctant to take 
the first step. They spoke against it when the matter was discussed 
in Spring 1957. Since then many statements have been issued claiming 
that the radioactivity resulting from nuclear tests is not dangerous. 
For example, in an official statement coming from the United States, 
we read the following: "The necessary steps should be taken to cor- 
rect the present confusion of the general public (with respect to the 
effects of testing ... the present and potential effects on heredity 
from the gradual increase of radioactivity in the air are kept within 
tolerable limits. . . The possibility of harmful effects which people 
believe to be outside control has a strong emotional impact . . . The 
continuation of nuclear tests is necessary and justified in the interests 
of national security." 

Despite these assurances, however, people are becoming increas- 
ingly apprehensive concerning the possible dangers resulting from 

nuclear tests. • 

The reasoning behind the somewhat obscure statement that the 
effects on heredity from the gradual increase of radioactivity in the 
air are kept within tolerable limits" is that the number of deformed 
children that will be bom as a result of the harm done to the sexual 
cells supposedly will not be large enough to justify the stopping of 

the tests. 

During this campaign of reassurance, a prominent American nu- 
clear physicist even declared that the luminous watchdials in the 
world l mil—Out a greater danger than the radioactive fall-out of 
nuclear tests until now. 

This campaign of reassurance sets up anticipations of glad tid- 
ings to the effect that science has succeeded in making the prototype 
of a hydrogen bomb with a considerably reduced dangerous radioac- 
tive fall-out. Th<- BOW explosive is called a "clean" hydrogen bomb. - 
The old type is being designated as the "dirty" bomb. 

The so-called "clean" hydrogen bomb differs from the other in 
having a jack, t made of a material which does not release immense 
quantities of radioactive elements at the enormous explosion tempera- 
ture. That is why it is less harmful, as regards radioactivity, than the 

usual ones. 

However, the new. highly-praised hydrogen bomb is — let it be 
said in passing— only relatively clean. Its trigger is an uranium bomb 
made of the fissionable uranium 235 — an atomic bomb as powerful as 
the one dropped owr Hiroshima. This bomb, when detonated, also pro- 
duces radio* tivity, as do the neutrons released in great numbers at 
the explosion. 

The idea of limited nuclear war is a contradiction in terms. Each 
Hide will use all the power at its disposal in an attempt to annihilate 
the enemy. The U.S. Department of Defense has quite recently de- 
clared that the irradiation of whole areas has become a new offensive 
weapon. 

Th." • < 1. an" hydrogen bomb may be intended, I fear, more for 
display purposes than for use. The intention seems to be to convince 
people that M*J nuclear tests will be followed by less and less radia- 
tion and that there is no real argument for the discontinuation of the 

teats. 

Those who think that the danger created by nuclear tests is 
small mainly take the air radiation into consideration, and persuade 
themselves to believe that the danger limit has not yet been reached. 

The results of their arithmetic are not so reliable, however, as 
th.y would have us believe. Through the years the toleration limit 
for radiation has had to be lowered several times. In 1934 it was 100 
radiation units per year. At present th»> limit is officially put at 5. 
In many countries it is even lower. Dr. Lnuriston Taylor (USA), who 
is regarded! as an authority on protection against radiation, holds — 
like oth.r.i— that it is an open question whether there is anything 
called a harmless amount of radiation. He thinks that we can only 
speak of an amount of radiation which we regard as tolerable. 

We arc constantly being told about a "maximum permissible" 
amount of radiation. What docs "permissible" mean? And who has the 
right to "permit" people to be exposed to these dangers?

Since Marianne Moore, W. H. Auden, and Stephen 
Spender have been unanimous choosing Ted 
Hughes's poems for the YM-YWHA First Publica- 
tion Award, it would be any reviewer's hard work 
to argue their choice. But it's good to be able to 
say that they chose well for '"The Hawk in the 
Rain" (Harper, $2.75) is a tough-minded book of 
first poems which have a fiber that is their own. 

Sometimes, as in the title poem, the syntax is 
as rough as the prosody, but both are only a mea- 
sure of the violent world from which Ted Hughes 
writes. If he is inclined toward raw adjectives 
which sometimes call more attention to themselves 
than to the world they qualify, he dramatizes at 
his best human hurt and integrity with a verbal 
energy that has been rare in recent English poetry, 
so that it is perhaps not surprising that such peri- 
odical publication as these poems have previously 
found, has been in America. 

But it is to America that Mr. Hughes has now 
come with his American wife (who, as Sylvia Plath, 
owns some fine poems herself), and to read his 
penetrating "Famous Poet" is to know how rightly 
his defenses are arranged against what this 
country can do to the luck that comes from 
abroad — whether England or Wales. 

Luckiest of all, Ted Hughes's poems keep mea- 
suring the empty gap between what seems and 
what is, and even in the genti.> lyricism of "The 
Dove Breeder," the depth of his perception is as 
sure as in the modest "Modest Proposal" or the 
climactic "Martyrdom of Bishop Farrar." Mr. 
Hughes is a young poet in his tendency to over- 
write, but he is also young in his refusal to cater 
to anything but his own demand for honest poems, 
and there is every evidence in this first book that 
both he and such poems will age well.

The Hawk In The Rain 

I drown in the drumming ploughland, I drag up 
Heel after heel from the swallowing of the earth's 

mouth, 
From clay that clutches my each step to the ankle 
With the habit of the dogged grave, but the hawk 

Effortlessly at height hangs his still eye. 
His wings hold all creation in a weightless quiet, 
Steady as a hallucination in the streaming air. 
While banging wind kills these stubborn hedges, 

Thumbs my eyes, throws my breath, tackles my 

heart, 
And rain hacks my head to the bone, the hawk hangs 
The diamond point of will that polestars 
The sea drowner's endurance: and I, 

Bloodily, grabbed dazed last-moment-counting 
Morsel in the earth's mouth, strain towards the

Fulcrum of violence where the hawk hangs still.

Coming the wrong way, suffers the air. hurled upside

The Campus Beat ^^2! 



by ALAN LUPO 

Two names dominate this week's conversation on campus — Cole- 
man Hawkins and Herb Pomeroy. Both these jazz greats will appear 
this Wednesday evening at the cage in A Living History of Jazz as 
narrated by Joston disc jockey and jazz critic John McLellan. 

In keeping with this week's apparent theme, the University Bands 
have scheduled their first practices. Under the direction of Prof. 
Joseph Contino, the Redmen Marching Band will join with the Preci- 
sionettes Monday through Friday in Memorial Hall fror.. 5 to 5:30 
p.m. to rehearse for the first home game with B.U. on Sept. 27. The 
Concert Band, also under the direction of Prof. Contino, will begin 
reheai-sals on Thursday, Sept. 18 from 7 to 9 p.m. at Memorial Hall. 
Student director Bob Clowes will lead the University Dance Band, 
which has been non-existent for a few years, every Wednesday in 
Skinner Hall, Room 4 from 7 to 9 p.m., starting Sept. 17. Interested 
musicians who have not already been contacted are encouraged to at- 
tend these initial meetings if they wish to participate. (With the ad- 
dition of two trombones, the University Dance Band could very well 
prove to be one of the finest musical organizations in UMass history). 
The following meeting notices have been received by the Pub- 
licity office: 

President Alan Bello announces the first meeting of the Pre-Med 
Club this Thursday at 7 p.m. in the SU Council Chambers. The re- 
quirements needed for Medical School will be taken up along with 
some short business. 

For those interested in the production of "Damn Yankees," there 
will be a meeting of the Operetta Guild in Memorial Hall, 6:30 p.m. 
on Wednesday, Sept. 17. 

Tuesday, Sept. 16, at 7:30 p.m. there will be a meeting of the 
Modern Dance Club in the Women's Physical Education Building. 

President Pro-Temp Dave Wilson has announced that the Student 
Senate will meet Wednesday at 7:00 p.m. in the SU Council Cham- 
bers. Anyone interested in the coming elections as candidates are in- 
vited to attend. 

"Resolved: That Further Development of Nuclear Weapons 
Should be Prohibited by International Agreement." This is to be the 
debate topic for this year's Debating Society. All those interested in 
the Society are invited to its Coffee Hour this Thursday, Sept. 18 at 
11 a.m. in the SU Worcester Room. 

The Chemistry Club will hold its first annual meeting this Wednes- 
day in the SU Middlesex Room. This will be a "get-together" meet- 
ing where the students will have a chance to meet some of the faculty 
of the Chemistry Dept. Refreshments will be served. 

There will be a meeting of Phi Eta Sigma at 7:00 p.m. this Tues- 
day in the SU Norfolk Room. This is a very important meeting at 
which the Tutoring Service will be planned. 

AH those interested in joining the Zoology Club are invited to 
the club's Hot Dog Roast at Groff Park this Saturday, Sept. 20. This 
is an excellent opportunity for you to meet the faculty of the De- 
partment in an informal surrounding. Rides will be provided in front 
of Fcrnald Hall at 1 :00 p.m. Price of admission is 50 cents to cover 
the cost of food (hot dogs, do-nuts, and cider). Those interested are 
asked to sign up at the secretary's office in Fernald Hall by Thursday. 



Phi Kappa Phi nominees an- 
nounced at opening convocation 
are as follows for the Class of

'60, and Rosalie C. Allen, '61. 

Initiates are: Lynn W. An- 
derson, Stuart B. Clough, Nan- 
cy Cook, Gilbert M. Mello, Mar- 
cella S. Boyd, Frank M. Smola, 
and C. A. Federer, III. 

This Wednesday, the Actor's 
Workshop, now advised by Miss 
Doris Abramson, will hold its 
first meeting at 6:30 in the Union. 
All old members and all inter- 
ested are asked to attend, as 
some important business will be 
brought up. 

Miss Abramson, the new advis- 
or, is a graduate of this Univer- 
sity. She received her Masters at 
Smith and is now a Speech in- 
structor at UMass. She succeeds 
Mr. William Burkhardt, who ad- 
vised the Workshop during its 
founding and aided it in its first 
semester of operation. Any fresh- 
man who has had experience or 



New Library 

"The new addition to the li- 
brary will not be ready for use 
during the present academic 
year," according to Hugh Mont- 
gome iy, U Mass librarian. 

The building is two and one 
half months behind schedule, 
due to "unforseeable and *un- 
toward circumstances," said 
Mr. Montgomery. It is now 
about 38 To completed. Target 
date for opening is the begin- 
ning of the next summer ses- 
sion. 

The stacks will be available 
to a limited number. Only stu- 
dents doing research work, or 
having other good reasons for 
using the stacks will be admit- 
ted. Browsing will not be al- 
lowed. 

"He (the student) has to 
prove to us that he has a real 
reason for access to the stacks, 
and is not just browsing 
through," stated Montgomery. 



Phi Gamma Delta 

Phi Gamma Delta fraternity 
of Amherst College will be un- 
able to function for two years. 

The National Convention 
charged the chapter with vio- 
lating the Phi Gamma Delta 
Constitution, of being disloyal 
to the fraternity, and of being 
guilty of unsatisfactory con- 
duct. 

The chapter was denied its 
right to initiate new members 
last year after the pledging of 
a Negro, although retiring 
president, Phillip C. Ebeling, 
said that there was no mention 
of this at the hearing. 

A committee was also set up 
to consider whether membership 
selection should be a matter of 
local decision.

interest in the theatre is invited 
to attend. 



SU SPOTLIGHT 

It is a quiet Sunday after- 
noon in the Hatch — a differ- 
ent atmosphere than that cre- 
ated by the weekly hordes. It is 
the type of setting where one 
can hear the conservation at the 
adjoining table. 

At this particular table sit a 
handful of girls casually talk- 
ing about the forthcoming 
movie this Thursday night. The 
movie of which I speak is the 
popular "Showboat," starring 
Howard Keel and Katharyn 
Grayson, to be shown in the SU 
Ballroom this Thursday at 7 
p.m. for the mere price of 25 
cents admission. 

This above conversation 
never took place, but it was the 
only way I could use to get your 
attention in order to tell you 
of the wonderful series of 
shows planned this year by the 
SU Movie Committee (Al Bel- 
lo, Chairman) . Included 
in this semester's shows 
(many of them in Cinema- 
scope) are: "Love Me or Leave 
Me," "Somebody Up There 
Likes Me," "Carmen Jones," 
"Lavender Hill Mob," and the 
very popular "Giant." 

Along with the movie, the 
Union features Fencing and 
Chess this evening, Bridge on 
Thursday evening, and a Hatch 
Dance this Saturday. 

The SU Planning Council, 
headed by Bob Murphy, extends 
its welcome to freshmen and 
upperclassmen alike to drop in- 
to the Program Office any time 
during the day whether it be 
for information, to join a Union 
committee, or just to browse 
around.

UNI Hosts Danish 
Gym Team Oct. 



This is the third group of Danish gymnasts, 
young men and women, to tour the U.S.A. and 
Canada, where they willl give performances in Dan- 
ish gymnastics and folk dances. 

Toward these groups of young Danes cordiality, 
warmth and friendliness have been extended on all 
tides, and the press has been most generous. 

FROM U.S. PRESS CLIPPINGS: 

"It is recommended by leading educators, phys- 
ical directors and public officials in this country. 

"In Madison Square Garden the team gave an 
intermission presentation before 18,000 roaring 
their applause. The event was broadcast. 

"NBC devoted a half-hour television broadcast to 
their presentation and afterwards wrote a letter 
complimenting them and recommending their pres- 
entation for television broadcast. 

"The Danish Gym Team received more applause 
than any other act at the Labor Day Celebration at 
Soldiers Field in Chicago. The performance was a 
high spot unrivaled on the program as far as the 
audience of 15,000 was concerned. 

"Life Magazine carried 3 pages of the team in 

action. 

"These young men and women are contributing 
a large share toward making the world a better 
pl.-ce in which to live, both by the impression they 
are creating on the youth of America, and the last- 
ing impressions of friendliness and understanding 
they will carry back to their homeland." 

Poul Clausen, the director of this tour of 1958- 
19G9, has been touring most of the world with gym- 
nastic groups and is known for his gymnastic abil- 
ity as well as for being an excellent gymnastics in- 
structor. 

The young people in this gioup represent the 
absolutely finest in Danish gymnastics. They are 
the product of Folk High Schools and Gymnastic 
Organizations from all over Denmark. 

The object of this team, under the direct spon- 
sorship of Mr. Poul Clausen, is to present the ulti- 
mate in Danish physical education to the people 
of America. It ia a non-profit venture, made possi- 
ble by the director and the savings of the people in 
the group. 

The team — 28 young Danes in their late teens or 
early twenties — arrived in New York on the 4th 
of September, 1958, and will tour from coast to 
coast, Canada as well, giving performances for stu- 
dents and the public 

UMass— Amherst 

by Dick Bresciani 

Coach Charlie O'Rourke un- 
veiled his 1958 edition of the 
UMass gridsters in a controlled 
scrimmage Saturday afternoon 
at Amherst College. 

A good-sized delegation of 
Umies made the cross-town trip 
and saw our sophomore-studded 
squad give a very creditable 
showing. 

The scrimmage consisted of 
six 12- minute periods, and lasted 
two and a half hours. 

The Redmen scored the first 
touchdown and then added two 
points on an extra point pass 
play to take a quick 8-0 lead. 
Redmen On Top 

Amherst barged back to build 
up a 22-8 margin before the 
Redmen really got rolling. The 
final tally saw UMaaa on the 
front end of a 41-28 score. 

The 0'Rourk«m«i moved the 
ball well on offense all after- 
noon, outgaining the Lord Jeffs 
by almost 800 yards. 

The passing of senior quarter- 
back Billy Maxwell aad his 
understudy Jack Conway was

Scrimmage 

. v •i-llent. The pair connected on 
15 of 21 pass attempts. 

Sophomore ends John Burgess 
and Dave Swepson were stand- 
outs on offense, making some 
nifty catches. 

The new extra-point rule, 
when-by a team can score two 
points by passing or running, or 
take one by kicking should pro- 
vide the fans with some excite- 
ment this fall. 

Try For Two 

Both UMass and Amherst 
went for the two points after 
every* touchdown except the final 
Redmen score. On that play, 
Gerry Walls split the uprights 
to provide the Redmen with 
their final margin. 

,The team will embark by bus 
early Friday morning for the

ONCE MORE UNTO THE BREACH 

Today begins nay fifth year ol writing ibis column, and what an 

eventful five years it lias been! What things have these old eyea 

not seen! What great discoveries have roeked the world — the 
anti-proton, for instance, and the anti-neutron, and high-low 
split, and Brigitte Bardot! 

In these five years it has also been discovered that American 
smokers like two kinds of cigarettes— filter and non-filter. The 
Philip Morns Company makes l>oth kinds. I mention the 
Philip Morn- ( ompan] beoaUM they pay me to mention the 
Philip Morris Company. They sponsor this column. I write it 
and then they give me money. Then I take the money and pay 
my grocer, my butcher, my gardener, and my four madrigal 
singers. In this way full employment is maintained and wo 
avoid a repetition of the Panic of 1873 when bread riots killed 
over 98 million people in Muncie, Indiana, and millions «>i > thers. 
were reduced to ghost-writing Ph. D. theses to keep body and 
soul together. 

But enough of gloom. Let us net hack to cheerful subjects, 
like the products of the Philip Morris Company, Pot those of 

you who wish filter cigarettes there is Marlboro, which now, 
more than ever, gives you I lot to like a brand new improved 
filter and a wonderful fiaVOf that comes breezing right through. 
For those of you who wish non-filter ciga rette s, there is Philip 
Morris, a mild natural blend, flavorful, fresh, and thoroughly 
agreeable. lor those of you who ean't decide between alters or 
non-filters but have an affinity tor packages, I should like to 
point OUt that both Marlboro and Philip Morris come in both 
the Cfushproof Flip-Top Box and the good old-fa>hioiied Soft 
Pack, and you will surely want several of each for your collection. 

Speaking for myself, I smoke both Marlboro and Philip 
Moirkl in both packs. What 1 do is make kind of g fun thing 

out of it. In inv be d room I have four signs, one on each wall, 
which say in turn: 'PHILIP MORRIS-SOFT PACK", 
"PHILIP MORRIS-FLIP-TOP," "MARLBORO- soFT 
PACK ' and "MARLBORO-FLIP-TOP". When I gvt up in 
the morning I put oo • blindfold and then my faithful eat Rover 

spins me around m\ times and then, with many I laugh and 
cheer, I walk forward with my finger outstretched and the first 
sign I touch i- the cigarette I smoke that day!

As you can imagine, this little game has been a great source 
of merriment to Rover and me, except for one untoward in- 
cident one morning. I was stumbling around in my blindfold 
and fell out the window right on top of a man named Fred R. 
Timken, a census taker, and broke all his lead |>encils. He was 
cross as a bear, and though I offered him both Philip Morris 
and Marlboro in both the Flip-Top Box and Soft Pack, he 
refused to be mollified. In fact, he refused to put my name 
down in the census , so when you read population figures of the 
United States, will you please add one? 

But I digress. We were speaking of Philip Morris and 
Marlboro who will bring you this column throughout the school 
year. In this space I will take up vital aspects of undergraduate 
life, like high-low split and Brigitte Bardot, and it is my fondest 
hope that the column will be half as much fun for you as it ia 

for me. c isss. mm shuiM*

Freshmen To Hear 
Scoop On Sehool 

An insight into scholastic, 
cultural, social, and extra-cur- 
ricular expectancies of freshmen 
will he the goal of Adelphia 
and Mortar Board tomorrow 
night, when the two senior 
honor societies present their 
annual Freshmen Talks. 

In addition to giving fresh- 
men an idea of what is axpeeted 
of them, the talks are designed 
so as also to give helpful tips 
in such phases of university life 
as: how to study, where cultural 
exhibits can be found, dating, 
and which and how many extra- 
curricular activities to enter into. 

In order tor Adelphians and 
Mortar Boards to reach the 
entire freshman class in one 
night, the following preceduro 
are requested: 

Freshmen In norm No. l"> 

Brooks, and Mills will meet in 

Baker at B:80 pun. 

I reshmen in Chadbourne, 
Hutlerlield. and Oreenough will 
meet in Van Meter's rec room 
at 10. p.m. 

Freshman women in Hamlin, 
Arnold, Crahtree, and Lewis 

will meet la their reepeethre 

dorms at 7 p.m. 

I i.-hman women in Abbey, 
knowlton. Leach, and Thatcher 
will meet in their respective 
dorms at 8:30. p.m. 



Long range planning has 
begun at the University of 
Massachusetts to convert one of 
the campus landmarks, Old 
Chapel, into an all-faith reli- 
gious center. 

The trustees have authorized 
"the administration to assign the 
building as a religious center 
upon completion of the two 
million dollar Liberal Arts Class- 
room building two years from 
now. 

Private funds will be sought 
to renovate the building to pro- 
vide expanded facilities for the 
thfee chaplains. 

In endorsing the project. 
President Mather states: "The 
i haplains have performed a 
tremendous and valuable service 
!iy salvaging a great many stu- 
dents who were emotionally 



disturbed or discouraged during 
their educational careers . . . Their 
present quarters do not lend 
themselves to the kind of spiri- 
tual dignity that is essential to 
a fully adequate religious coun- 
seling program." 

The Chaplains have recom- 
mended that facilities include 
offices for counseling; rooms for 
associates and secretaries: 

separate offices for student 
organizations; an office for faiths 
not now served by a chaplain: 
small worship rooms for Jewish, 
liiiman Catholic, and Protestant 
(■roups as well as an all-faith 
room. Other facilities would in- 
clude the auditorium which 
could be converted into a chapel, 
meeting rooms for group events, 
a library, a lounge, activity 
workshop, and kitchen.

For Fall Collegian Staff 



MORE DITCHES 
PLANNED FOR 
NEW PIPEWORK 

"We won't be finished with 
this underground work for some 
time." Thus commented UMass 
Construction and Maintenance 
Engineer Hugill, concerning the 
digging activity presently dis- 
rupting the campus. 

The work presently let out on 
contract is almost completed. 
However, new work, amounting 
to nearly 2 million dollars for 
utility work, will soon be under- 
taken. This work will not entail 
digging up or altering the new 
pipe already placed. "Anything 
that goes in is not being modi- 
fied in any way, it is being added 
to," Hugill stated. 

Utility work is being done one 
section at a time. All the neces- 
sary work to serve all the build- 
ings in the area, as indicated on 
the Master Plan, is done at one 
time. 



Aspiring journalists will again 
have the opportunity to become 
members of the Fourth Estate as 
the first Ci'lhiiiiin Training Pro-

First Senate

by DICK MacLEOD 

Senate Reporter 

The Student Senate will com- 
ictivities for the coming 
year with its first meeting to- 
night at 7 p.m. in the Council 
Chambers. 

At that time preliminary plans 
will be drawn up for the October 
elections, when Dorms, Com- 
muters and Greeks choose their 
representatives for the coming 
year. Enthused freshmen are 
expected to add to the action in 
the campaigns and later on the 
Senate floor. 

Action, however, was not mis- 
sing at the dose of last semes- 
ter, as evidenced by the long 
battle over vending machine 
receipts and scholarships, settled 
finally this fall by President 
Mather in his Opening Convoca- 
tion address. 

Other items passed last Menu s> 
ter included a change in women's 
dorm rules to allow smoking in 
the women's dorms, and the 
optional weekend meal plan now 
available to the student body. 
The latter succeeded only after 
many weeks of Senate discus 
sion and a general student refe 
re nd um.

Snake Has Rattles 

How About Man?? 



This is a young timber rattle 
snake trusted in the hands of 
Sidney Chapin, a senior who is 
majoring in Zoology here at the 
University Mr. Chapin has other 
poisonous and non poisonous 
snakes as pcta, but he trusts none 
of the other poisonous snakes as 
much as this one. 

Snakes are not as dangerous aa 
people think. If the snake bit Mr. 
Chapin, it would only make him 
sick for a short time. 

Up to now Mr. Chapin has had 
a timber rattlesnake bite through 
his pants leg when he was hunt- 
ing them in the wilds but he has 
never had his hVsh touched by a 
snake's fangs. 

This particular animal is 
being used to study the growth 
rate of snakes.

Progress At Last 

After careful appraisal of the freshman 
orientation program which had been the tra- 
dition for many years, it was decided by 
members of the administration and staff 
that a radical change was necessary. 

There is no doubt that an academic at- 
mosphere is now more prevalent in all as- 
pects of university life thai* it has been in 
the past. It is only logical, then, that the 
deceitful and obscure idea of true college life 
which most students received from the tradi- 
tional orientation program should have been 
renovated. 

Unfortunately, the university catalogue 
is ridiculously out of date, which made it 
necessary to contact incoming freshmen and 
inform them of the new curriculum changes 
before registration. 

In groups of 200, the freshmen spent one 
weekend on campus during the summer. 
They were given tests, and many freshmen 
were placed beyond beginning courses on 
the basis of test performance. 

Each student met with his advisor; one 
who was thoroughly able to advise the fresh- 
man in his chosen course of study. Each ad- 

or received a copy of his advisee's test 
scores, which made it possible to advise each 
Studeut intelligently. 

One of the marked changes from the old 
orientation program was the attempt made 
to put in the hands of the student as much 
information about himself as possible. Each 
freshman was given knowledge of his stand- 
ing in his class. 

Also, as. part of this program the parents 
of incoming freshmen were invited to meet 
with the administration, faculty, chaplains, 
and some students. Hy including the parents 
in I lentation program many questions 

they had ooold be asked and correctly an- 
swered. 

After studying the situation it is fairly 
ObvfoOfl that the freshmen were given the 
opportunity to get an honest academic pic- 
ture of the university and a solid look at the 
futun-.

To the Editor: 

I would like to take this op- 
portunity to inform the student 
body that our university pn 
dent has accepted WMUA's in- 
vitation to spend every Monday 
evening from 6:45 p.m. to 7:00 
p.m. at the station. He is featured 
in a radio program called "Meet 
The President." 

During these 15-minute pro- 
grams he will answer questions 
from all parts of the university 
community. The questions are 
asked by students who write 
them out and leave them in the 
box provided at the S.U. lobby 
counter. 

Mr. Mather has 'promised to 
give "straight from the shoulder" 
answers to all questions, and to 



pet answers to those that take 
some research. 

I was present at the first 
broadcast, and such topics as Phi 
Beta Kappa, fluorescent lights in 
the dorms, our football policy, 
and permission for students to 
have cars on campus were dis- 
cussed. 

I think this program represents 
an opportunity for each student 
to air all the significant ques- 
tions that go unanswered in bull 
sessions from September to June. 

Our busy president has put 
himself on the firing line to give 
you a chance to field some of 
your questions. Fire away!

An Obligation To Tomorrow 

Editor's Note: This is the second installment of an article written 
by Dr. Albert Schweitzer on the topic of nuclear warfare. The COL- 
LEGIAN 1001 reprint the entire article in installment* ajipearing 
three times a we°.k. 

When speaking about the risk of radiation we must take into 
consideration not only the radiation coming from the outside, but 
also the radioactivity that gets into our bodies. 

What is the source of this radioactivity? 

The radioactive materials put into the air by nuclear tests do 
not stay there permanently. In the form of radioactive rain — or even 
radioactive snow — they fall to the earth. They enter the plants 
through leaves and roots and stay there. We absorb them by drinking 
milk from cows or by eating the meat of animals which have fed on 
it. Radioactive rain contaminates our drinking water. 

The most powerful radioactive poisoning occurs in the areas 
between the Northern latitudes 10 and 60, because of the numerous 
nuclear tests conducted mainly in these latitudes by the Soviet Union 
and the United States. 

The radioactive elements absorbed over the years by our body 
are not evenly distributed in the cellular tissue, but are deposited and 
accumulated at certain points. From these points internal radiation 
takes place, causing injuries to particularly vulnerable organs. What 
this kind of radiation lacks in strength is made up for by its longev- 
ity, working as it docw for years, day and night. 



It is a well-known fact that one of the most widespread and 
dangerous elements absorbed by us hs strontium-90. It is stored in the 
bones and emits from there its rays into cells of red bone marrow, 
where the red and white corpuscles are made. If the radiation is too 
great, blood diseases — fatal in most cases — are the result. 

The cells of the re p ro duc tive organs are particularly sensitive. 
Even relatively weak radiation may lead to fatal consequences. 

The most sinister aspect of internal as well as external radiation 
is that years may pass before the e\ il consequences appear. Indeed, 
they make themselves felt, not in the first or second generation, but 
in the following ones, (feneration after generation, for centuries to 
come, will witness the birth of an ever-increasing number of children 
with mental and physical defects. 

It is not for the physicist, choosing to take into account only the 
radiation from the air, to utter the final won! on the dangers of nu- 
clear tests. That right belongs to the biologists and physicians who 
have studied internal as well as external radiation, and to those sci- 
entists who pa;* attention to the facts established by the biologists 
and physicians. 



The declaration signed by 9,2.% scientists of all nations, handed 
to the Secretary General of the U.N. by Dr. Linus Pauling on Janu- 
ary* lib 1958, gave the campaign of reassurance a serious blow. The 
scientists declared that the radioactivity gradually created by nuclear 
tests represents a grave danger for all parts of the world, particular- 
ly serious because its consequences will be an increasing number of 
deformed children in the future. For this reason they insist on an 
international agreement putting an end to the nuclear tests. 

The declaration signed by the >.2.'*r> scientists did well hi stress- 
ing the danger of the harmful effe*\s of nuclear tests on future gen- 
erations which, according to biologists and physicians, will be the re- 
sult of the radiation to which we are being exposed. 

We must not disregard our responsibility to guard against the 
possibility that thousands of children may be born with the most seri< 
ous mental and phyMical defects. It will be no excuse for us to say 
later that we were unaware of that possibility. Only those who have 
never been present at the birth of a deformed baby, never witnessed 
the whimpering cries of its mother, should dare to maintain that the 
risk of nuclear testing is a small one. 




CAMERA THREE 

EniTOS'fl Note: TIi is article is tin first of a series 
of critical -'rticles which trill afJOcMM" iceckly in ti e 
Collegian 

How do you spend your Sunday mornings? Most 
of us sleep late. I suppose. Then there is that Sat- 
urday night hangover. Many of us also attend to 
religious obligations. Generally speaking, it is the 
one morning in the week where absolute relaxation 
may reign. I should like to impose upon this Utopia 
to call your attention to the opportunity you have 
each Sunday morning to take part in what is per- 
haps one of the most entertaining programs on 
television . . . 

Camera Three 

Do not be misled by the fact that this program 
is listed as educational. To be sure, it is educa- 
tional, but it is much more. One could say it is the 
wonders of television realized. Probably the main 
reason for this is that it is not limited by the com- 
mercial bounds of the common m6ney-minded spon- 
sor. (It is sponsored by the New York State Edu- 
cational Department.) Free of these limitations the 
director can present the most varied range of sub- 
ject material with a loose, imaginative, and creative 
method. It is this method which makes the program. 

To demonstrate this method let us look at a scene 
from last week's program which was a dramatiza- 
tion of William Faulkner's The Tall Men. In that 
scene a man was about to have his leg amputated. 
The operation was to be performed on a table in his 
home. Six people were present beside himself; his 
two sons, a marshal, a man from the draft board, 
the doctor, and a friend. All the viewer saw during 
the scene was the seven men and the table. The 
entire background was black. Change of mood was 
achieved by pure acting, by camera view, and by 
the manipulation of light. * 

Another time, Chekov's The Enemies was dram- 
atized. Once again blackness prevailed in the setting. 
The only visible objects were the frameworks of the 
rooms of the house, the two men and the objects 
they touched (such as a stool or a desk). 

The method seems to be this. Whenever it is 
possible, anything which might distract the view- 
er's attention is dropped from view. The barest min- 
imum of detail is used. 

Whenever it is possible, anything which might 
distract the viewer's attention is dropped from view. 
The barest minimum of detail is used. 

I could go on and on. This is not the only as- 
pect of the method used by this program. You must 
watch the program yourself to get an idea of what 
is being accomplished. Believe me, your amazement 
and enjoyment will never end. 

As to subject material I stress the chance to 
learn and again to entertain. Note the following 
list of past presentations as an example of what 
you can expect on any Sunday: 

Dramatization and discussion of Do.sto.vski's 
The l,li,,t; discussion and viewing of the paintings 
of Picasso; the use of light in the paintings of Rem- 
brandt; modern Irish literature discussed by the 
authors themselves; the poetry of W. B. Yeats; dis- 
cussion of Mark Twain; American Presidents— good 
or bad; the use of light and dark in art and litera- 
ture; ballet; jazz; opera; etc. The range is endless 
and exciting. The presentations and discussions are 
carried on by noted people. The actors range from 
good unknowns to good knowns. 

Now for one more piece of good news— the time. 
It is almost ideal. 11:30 a.m. In this area the pro- 
gram is carried by channels 18 and 40. 

This week begins a two part dramatization of 
Dostoevski's MofM From The rnrffljl llllllf You 
will not be sorry. The program lasts only a half hour 
and is well worth the time.

Roister Doisters 
Will Do "Wind 

"Inherit The Wind." the re- 
nowned drama that ran for over 
two years in New York, will be 
the fall production of the Roister 
Doisters. This is the play by 
Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. 
Lee that is based on the famous 
Scopes evolution case in Dayton, 
Tenn.. in !!»-•">. in which Clarence 
I (arrow and William Jennings 
Bryan were the leading antago- 
nists. 

A Chicago attorney named 
Drummond. patterned after Dar- 
row, comes to 'a little town in 
Tennessee to defend a young 
schoolteacher charged with 
\iolating the state's law against 
teaching Darwin's theory of 
evolution. 

There was never any question 
that the young schoolteacher 
named Scopes was guilty of 
breaking the law of the state of 
Tennessee. He deliberately dis- 
cussed Darwin's theory of evolu- 
tion in his schoolroom in order 
to test the law and then was 
arrested for it. Each side 
brought up its heavy artillery 
and the battle was on. 

"Inherit The Wind" rather 
faithfully follows the actual 
events leading up to and includ- 
ing the trial, but in the play not 
only have Darrow and Bryan 
been re-named Drummond and 
Brady, but also other names 
have been changed. 

Casting for the production is 
now going on. Anyone interested 
in trying out for the play should 
report to the Student Union at 
7 p.m., Wednesday and Thurs- 
day. Those desiring to be in 
other phases of production 
should also report at the same 
time. 




The Poll Bearers 

by MEL YOKKN 
Photos by Jim Leonard 
Question: Do you think fresh- 
man orientation period helped 
you get tight into the swing of 
university life? 

I "Yes, by attend- 
ing the orienta- 
tion this summer, 
I had the oppor- 
tunity to find out 
Iwhat the classes 
and buildings 
w. iv like. I made 
Kred« K*t.»r 62 many new friend- 
ships which I know will continue 
through my years in college.' 

"The orientation 
policy is a very 
good idea, but I 
don't like the 
policy of Satur- 
day classes and 
t h e long lines. 
Through the ori- 
entation period i Fred 8hoti '62 
got to know a lot of people." 

"Yes, it was a 
big help. 1 loved 
the big weeknd, 
found out where 
the buildings 
wire located, met 
so many people, 
and got through 
Carol Rtaa n™ with many ex- 
ams." 

"By being able ( 
to com* to the '«■* 
summer orienta- 
tion period, we 
all gained a 
bird's-eye view of 
what college life 
really is. We also 
found it helpful, hBr |„ tMr ( . 





to have an idea of our programs 
for the fall. I personally enjoyed 
meeting some of my classmates 
before the fall semester." 

"By attending 
the summer ori- 
| entation period 
we were a 1 1 
through with 
j testing periods, 
no programs had 
to be made out, 
r.roi Kuhi„ «2 W» acquired new 
friends, and had an i<lea of some 
of the things we had to bring up 
to school once the semester got 
started." 

"Definitely. Wej 
all had an idea 
of what campus 
life would be oncej 
it really got 
started, we were) 
used to living on 
campus, and we 
made friends that Kuth tronje '61 
would be in our classes."

Horse Takes 
Grand Prize 

by BETTY HEINZE 
Guest Reporter 

I'M ass entries took top honors 
Monday in the intercollegiate 
Morgan competition at the East- 
ern States Exposition in Spring- 
field. Competition was against 
the universities of Vermont, Con- 
necticut, and New Hampshire. 

A yearling, Bay State Elect, 
took not only Jr. Champion Stal- 
lion, but Grand Champion Stal- 
lion also. Bay State Flyen took 
second in the stallion foal class. 

Bay State Bonnie took second 
in the class for mares three years 
and over and also took Reserve 
Sr. Champion Mare. Bay State 
Estrelita took first in the year- 
ling mare class and beat our own 
Bay State Debbie, who took sec- 
ond in the class for mares over 
two and under three, to win Re- 
serve Jr. Champion Mare. Es- 
trelita also took Reserve Grand 
Champion Mare. 

In the combination classes, the 
UMass Morgans made an equally 
imposing record. Elect, Estrelita, 
Bonnie, and Debbie took first in 
the stallion and three mares 
group. This class is judged on 
the exhibited animals' suitability 
as the start of a new herd. 

The judge for the intercollegi- 
ate Morgan division was George 
Dunham of Longmeadow. The 
UMass Morgans are trained by 
horseman Richard Nelson and 
were attended at the fair by 
Philippe Brouillette S*59.

—40 YEARS AGO— 
M UDDERS DAY'— The College Pond ceased to be an addition to 
the picturesqueness of the campus to these frosh, who were thorough- 
ly disillusioned as a result of their enforced trip across the same 
without the dubious comfort of water. 



IFH; 




—30 YEARS AGO— 

At the annual Sophomore-Freshman Rope Pull, held on Saturday 
afternoon across the pond, the representatives of the Sophomore class 
showed their superiority over the neophytes by means of their ex- 
cellent teamwork. 

—20 YEARS AGO— 

The freshmen out-heaved and out-pulled the sophomores to win 
the rope-pull last Saturday afternoon. The annual event, occurring at 
the banks of the college pond and ending in the waters thereof, was a 
hard-fought battle. 

—10 YEARS AGO— 

Some joker let the water out of the pond Friday night, so the 
umpteenth renewal of the freshman-sophomore rope pull held last 
Saturday afternoon, took place across College Mudhole with some 
two thousand confused spectators witnessing the chaotic proceedings. 

—AND THIS YEAR??? 



SOME OF MY FRIENDS 



by R.P.G. 



Joe Gumquat who lives , :i->t of 
here had a little difficulty at the 
beginning, of this semester that 
I feel I must relate. 

At home Joe kissed his parents 
goodbye hurriedly, because they 
had to get back to the sweat 
shop to earn the money it takes 
to keep Joe at the university 

Money seems to be the main 
problem for Joe, his older broth- 
er, and a few others. Yet Joe 
almost had one money-problem 
solved. He could have saved at 
least ten or fifteen bucks on 
books. The year before, his older 
brother bought most of the books 
he needed for this semester. 

Joe entered his first classes 
with his heart beating like mad 
(bless it), and a big smile show- 
ing off all his bad teeth. His 
professors went through the 
usual routine of seating the class, 



and telling the students why they 
weren't using the old books. 
Snme of the latest presentations 
and points of view were to !>e 
found only in the ones with hard 
and shiny covers. 

"This couldn't be too bad. 
After all, the average student 
neeils the latest presentations 
and points of view," thought Joe, 
until he found out that this new 
stuff cost from six to nine dollars 
a book. Most of the hooks were 
n>v,r used at the school before 
and used books just were not 
available. All together Joe is 
going to spend $29.63 on books 
and supplies when he gets the 
dough. 

Of this, some good came to Joe. 
He isn't showing his disgusting 
looking teeth anymore. 

(Joe, of course, really ain't, 
but I do know his brother and 
the others.)

Forced To Amherst College 



The Concert Association will 
present its "anchor" concert, 
Arthur Fielder with the Boston 
"Pops," at the Amherst College 
Cage on Thursday, March 5, 
1959 rather than at the I" Mass 
cage because of a series of 
obstacles commonly referred to 
as "red tape and tradition." 

It seems that the Concert As- 
sociation procured the services 
of the Boston "Pops" at a rate 
of $4,120 — the usual fee is 
$6,500 per concert — after the 
"Pops" had canceled a previous 
appearance scheduled for that 
date, to appear at the Univer- 
sity. But bcause the Student 
Senate traditionally holds its 
budget hearings in the Spring, 
although somewhat earlier last 
spring, no funds were allocated 
for concerts, thus none could be 
guaranteed, and a delay was 
encountered. 

When the concert date was 
finally submitted to the Calendar 
committee, it was discovered 
that the Cage was booked for 
the entire week of March 2-fi 
for the Small High Schools 
Basketball Tournament. Since 
this tournament had already ap- 
peaVed on this campus for the 
past 25 years, traditions could

Senate Reporter 

not, indeed would not, Da broken 
for one COAeart, ROt even the 
Boston 'Top<," declared the ad- 
ministration. 

The Concert Association, 
forced to provide a suitable per- 
formance hall before a contract 
could he signed, sought, and ob- 
tained, the Amherst College 
Cage. 

The I'M students u-ere still 
be to heard, however, as just 
prior to final exams several 
possible solutions to the conflict 
were offered in the Student 
Senate by Senator Robert G. 
Prentiss '60 and Senator Art 
Shaw '60. These proved to be 
too late. The semester ended, 
the students went home to earn 
their student tax money and 
tuition, and the Concert Asso- 
ciation printed its advance publi- 
city, thus preventing any pos- 
sible change after classes re- 
sumed this fall. 

So there we are, or will be, 
walking 'cross town come March 
5th to hear what might well be 
the season's beat concert — and 
it does get cold around here in 
March. 

Perhaps the Senate could get 
things started just a little earlier 
this year? 



Conference Held 
At University 

Thive panels will highlight the 
first Retailing Conference on 
campus September 30. 

After an opening address by 
Dean H. B. Kirshen of the School 
of Business Administration, the

tion," and "Problem Areas in re- 
tailing" are the topics for panel 
consideration. 

Malcolm P. McNair of the 
Harvard Graduate School of 
Business will present a luncheon 
speech which will be followed by 
a general question period. All 
speakers will participate in this 
part of the conference program. 

The event is sponsored by the 
School of Business Administra- 
tion in cooperation with the 
Northampton Chamber of Com- 
merce. * 

Advance registrations may be

BROTHERHOOD? J) ear ^ M/ ,^ R U tHie . . . 



Fraternities! 
Good. Bad. Or 

Indifferent 

Are college fraternities "stu- 
pid, juvenile, and purposeless," 
H Sloan Wilson, author of "The 
Man in the Grey Flannel Suit," 
claims? Or are they, in the 
wmds of Dr. Milton Eisenhower, 
President of Johns Hopkins Uni- 
\ersity, the "anvils upon which 
the character of individuals may 
be fashioned?" 

Stephen Birmingham, himself 
the author of a current novel, 
discusseo the pros and cons of 
the question in the October issue 
of Holiday magazine. 

A Williams graduate and a 
one-time fraternity man himself, 
Birmingham analyzes America's 
I|2M student organizations from 
the differing viewpoints of lead- 
ing educators and concludes that 
fraternities can be good and bad. 
constructive or destructive in 
their influence, depending upon 
the individual colleges them- 
selves. Me finds that fraternities 
run the gamut from the l»r« • 
party- popping nonchalance of 
Dartmouth to the quiet, pur- 
poseful life at Gettysburg- 
Birmingham also noten the 
role of the National Inter-frater- 
nity Conference, the "conscience" 
of American fraternities bh the 
organization which can "scold" 
hut not punish. Many college 
administrators praise the NIC 
for its aims and successes while 
others consider it the equivalent 
to a "well-intentioned busy-body, 
a sort of off-campus Mary 
Worth." 

"The greatest single truth 
about college fraternity houses," 
writes Birmingham, "is that if 
you have seen one, you have 
not seen them all." 



DEAR READER. 

This is the beginning of a weekly column designed to solve all 
the heatbreaking romantic problems that occur on this campus. I am 
Henry Heartmend's Aunt Ruthie. You remember Dear Henry, don't 
you? I was the ghost writer for his column last year. He was going 
to return this year to lend his name but unforeseeable events oc- 
curred which made this impossihle. 

At the end of last semester Henry fell in love with an exchange 
student from the back Bush Country named Mary Ann. He is now as- 
sistant Medicine man in her tribe, and plans to marry her after the 
coming elections. They hope to participate in the annual kangaroo 
hunt for their honeymoon. 

With your kind permission I 
would lil.e to fill in for him this 
y,u. Having attended many 
'•lieges and universities for 
durations as long as seven weeks 
hefore being thrown oat, I feel 
that I am well enough acquainted 
with campus romantic problems 
to do ;vhle to handle any and all 
letters. 

Please address all letters to 
Aunt Rutin, in care of the Col- 
'•'/•"" offic, if your problem is 
\.ry s,rret, you can wait until 
the wee hours of the morning 
and then break into the Student 
Union. Slip the letter under the 
door in the cover of darkness. 

Here are a couple of letters 
faeeived recently which wort 
addressed to Henry: 

Dear Henry, 

My girl is about four inches 
taller than I and every lime I go 
to kiss her good goodnight she 
hemN over and kiSties me on the 
forehead. This, as you can 
imagine, is no small embarrass- 
ment. What should I do? 

"Shorty" 
Dear Shorty, 

When approaching the dorm, 
walk her to the front steps and 
then stand one step higher than 
■be does.

THE MAS8ACH1 SETfS COLLEGIAN, WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 17. 1958 



EIGHT SENIORS TO START 



Gridders Await 
Opener With Maine 



WHh the season opener less 
than a week away Univ. of Mass. 
Head Coach Charlie O'Rourke 
indicated this week that eight 
senior lettermen will probably 
be starters when ths Redmen 
meet the Univ. <>f Maine this 
Saturday at Orono. 

Football wins have been few 
and far between for the former 
Boston College great during the 
past few seasons and although 
not making any profound pre- 
diction, O'Rourke is convinced 
that this year's Redmen s<|uad is 
probably th.- best that he has 
had during a seven year tenure. 

A D backfleld that in- 

cludes Hilly Maxwell at quar- 
leck, Bill R< ynolds and Co- 
captain Gfrry Walls at half- 
backs, and Ed 'BUM' Richardson 
at fallback promises to give 
Mass. follower* some sound per- 
fomance during the next ten 

week*. 

S.. phomo.es Jack Conway, Jim 
Hickman, Tom Delnickas and 
Dick Moss were ■ solid aggri 
tion for the fine frosh team a 
year ago, and with a bit of ex- 



perience could spell the veterans 
as a unit for any length of time. 

Depth In Line 
On the forward wall, the 
middle line positions appear to 
be the best fortified at this 
stage of the campaign. Senior 
John Mont<si, O'Rourke's handy 
man who can play center, guard, 
or tackle appears to be the pivot 
man and is improving with every 
day of practice. Co-captain Bill 
Goodwin and Lou Varrichione 
form probably the best one-two 
guard punch of any team in the 
Yank<e Conference and these 

two lettermen are ably hacked 
up by junior Russ Reveivau and 

sopaon orei Arraaad Caraviello, 
Jerry Cullen ami John OttoviaaL 
Benfor. l'hil BerardJ heads the 
tackle candidates at his right 
tackle position and junior Dick 
Riley, who was sidelined with 
injuries during most of last sea- 
will probably start at the 
left tackle berth. Juniors B o 
Foote, Bd Humpus and Dick 
Thornton provide O'Rourke with 
tackle depth for the first time in 
many a moon. 



Ends Inexperienced 

The real question mark spots 
at the moment appear to be both 
ends, where junior Ralph 
Maloney and sophomores John 
Burgess, John Champagne, Bill 
MeKenna. Dave Swepson and 
Harry Williford are all battling 
for the two starting roles. Only 
time will tell as to how the in- 
perienced flank men will fare, 
and their showing will definitely 
bfl I factor in the overall success 
of the Redmen this fall. 

Don't Expect Miracles 

All in all. it could be a promis- 
ing season for the I' Mass 

griditera if the sophomores pro- 
ride some depth and speed as 
the campaign unfolds. O'Rourke 
is the first to warn, however, 
"Don't expect miracles during 
the first half of our rugged 
schedule dnee it is definitely 
going to take time for our 
twenty two sophomores to ad- 
just and get that experience 
that comes only through game 
competition."

must be admitted that the inno-

college football."

BUZZ RICHARDSON

For YanCon Berths 



As the preparations for the 
season's opener with Maine come 
to a head, it looks as though 
UMaai may have two potential 
griddan for the All Yankee Con- 
ference team. 

This y.ai'- team will be

loop, and another YanCon All

club. By averaging live yards per

earned himself the title of "The

What he lacked in speed, he 
made up with his ability as a 
battering ram. 

Lou Line Standout 

Lou Yarnehione of Nati.k's 
football family should be one of 
the league's top lineman. Last 
year he was voted the outstand- 
ing lineman of the Redman 
eleven, and should be even better 
this season. 

Last fall the IV, 106 th, 

guard WM forced to play 10 
minute.-, per con te st and had to 
alternate at tackle due to the 
lack of d.pth on the team. 

With a full, physically fit 
souad Lou should be able t<> con-

Women Must Take Place In Toda y's Society— Dr. Schuck 

Senate Debates Lots, Election 



by MARSHALL WHITHED '61 

In a brief first meeting last 
Wednesday night, the Student 
Senate mado plans for the com- 
ing election, as well as setting 
up an absentee voting commit- 
tee and discussing the construc- 
tion problem at the Cinders 
parking lot. 

Ted Sheerin '60 was appoint- 
ed chairman of the absentee 
voting committee. The purpose 
of this committee is to encour- 
age students over 21 to vote by 
absentee ballot. By next week 
this committee will have pre- 
pared and distributed absentee 
voting applications to those 
students who desire them. 

The question of the construc- 
tion work at Cinders parking 
lot, and its effects on student 
parking in that lot was brought 
up by Senator Zelis, '60. Mr. 
Mellen, Superintendent of 
Buildings and Grounds, told this 
reporter that the underground 
construction now being done at 
Cinders will cut diagonally 
across the lots. 

The ditch will block off the 
entrances to Cinders. To reach 
their parking spaces, students 
will have to come into the lot 

Study 
In Britain 

The Marshall Scholarship 
Awards of 1959 are now being 
offered to students by the British 
Gove nment. 

Each award, worth $1,400 a 
year, pays the student's tuition 
for two and occasionally three 
years at a United Kingdom uni- 
versity. Students should send 
their applications to the British 
Consul-General in New York 
City before October 31. 

Twelve of these two year 
study grants are awarded to any 
American student, who is under 
the age af 26 on October 1, 1959. 
Both the student's character and 
scholastic ability are considered. 

The Marshall Scholarships 
were founded in 1958 as an ex- 
pression of Britain's gratitude 
for Marshall Aid. 



via the Hadley Road. Parking 
will only be possible on the long 
side near County Circle. 

Mr. Mellen expressed the be- 
lief that some of the lot will be 
open most of the time. If the 
construction work is done in 
sections, students will probably 
have access to the lot without 
resorting to the Hadley Road. 
"It is going to be a mess, but 
there is nothing we can do 
about it," he commented. 

Senator Zelis stated that he 
will prepare a full report on 
the Student Leader's Confer- 
ence, held early this fall, prob- 
ably in two or thi-ee weeks. 

President pro tern Wilson re- 
minded Senators that all mo- 
tions to be placed on the agenda 
for the next meeting must be in 
by Friday.

Faculty Panel Criticizes 
U.S. Policy On Formosa 



by RICHARD MacLEOD '60 

An overflow crowd of students 
jammed Leach House Lounge last 
night to hear a UM faculty panel 
criticize the U.S. position on For- 
mosa, Quemoy, and Matsu. 

Mr. Craig of the History de- 
partment reasoned that the Chi- 
nese people's belief in the "Man- 
date of Heaven" — that the legi- 
timate government will always 
hold power — gave final suprem- 
acy to the Reds. 

He showed that the National- 
ists were forced off of the main- 
land after receiving two billion 
dollars in U.S. aid, while the 
Communists received no aid from 
Russia. » 

Provost Shannon McCune ques- 
tioned President Eisenhower's re- 
cent portrayal of Matsu and Que- 
moy islands as "out in the For- 
mosa strait," by showing that the 
relative position of these islands 
is about the same as that of Stat- 
en Island to the U.S. mainland. 
He declared these islands to be 
of "doubtful value to the U.S.," 
and "not stepping stones to any- 
where." 

Dr. Feng of the Engineering 
department stated that the 
natives of Formosa are indiffer- 



ent as to who rules, so long as 
there is peace; the immigrants 
would like to move back to their 
homes on the mainland, but 
"might not be so strongly moved 
to fight after the bombs start 
falling;" and the government 
would also like to return — if it 
has U.S. help, he continued. 

Dr. Braunthal of the Govern- 
ment department covered present 
administration policies and op- 
position criticisms. He suggested 
three possible courses of future 
action. First, that the U.S. might 
attempt to maintain the status 
</u<>, which would probably con- 
tinue the present crisis, and pos- 
sibly lead to limited or general 
warfare. Or, the U S. might neu- 
tralize Quemoy and Matsu in re- 
turn for a guaranteed Red cease- 
fire. 

He concluded by suggesting a 
third possibility, major compro- 
mise on both sides. The VA 
would allow the Red Chinese in-

Tons of mortar, brick, glass, 
and boards have been trans- 
formed into massive modern 
buildings. 

With the completion of the 
new Women's Physical Educa- 
tion Building, it is now possible 
for girls to major in physical 
education. 

The $1,921,000 building has 
a gymnasium with two basket- 
ball courts: an indoor archery 
range, bowling alleys, and a re- 
gulation length swimming pool. 

N. Wry completed is the first 
part of the four section Science

Public Health Center, it will 
house the School of Nursing, the 
departments of Bacteriology and 
Public Health, and the regional

ment.

the how of a subject. 

"There are two hurdles for the 
Woman of Today to cross," said 
Dr. Schuck. One is the problem 
of Conformity. However, that 
doesn't create too much of a dil- 
emma because "as soon as you 
tell people exactly how they are 
behaving, they will begin to be- 
have differently." 

The other hurdle is "finding 
time for relaxation and thought, 
like Thoreau did in his beloved 
Walden." We must not, like so 
many busy women, rush around 
with the idea of "doing nothing, 
but doing it well." 

As for the Woman of Tommor- 
row, what will she be like? "Mar- 
riage, a family, more graduate 
work, a job, continuing her pro- 
fession," answered Dr. Schuck. 

Our assistant Secretary of La- 
bor, Mrs. Leopold, stated, "In the 
last two years professional and 
working women have contributed 
more to the gross national pro- 
duct than in any other two years, 
except in war time." 

But there's something else to 
consider, — the politics of 1670. 
"We can not escape responsibility 
for our community regardless of 
whether we are married or single, 
employed or not." Contrast this 
modern woman with the "Bloom- 
er Girl of 100 years ago, who 
fought to oh*"' i the franchise." 

"In conclusion, we the Women 
of Today, shall have a chance to 
influence more destinies than 
ever before in the career of 
women." 



Students Await Texts 
Because Of Late Orders 



*cvr.i 



r^ 

• - s < I f" 






I'Mass students are waiting 
for between twenty-five and 
thirty different textbooks, ac- 
cording to one authority at the 
campus bookstore. 

The spokesman said that the 
chief cause of this situation is 
simply the late ordering of texts 
by the individual departments. 
This was caused by the fact that 
many instructors, who choose 
their own texts, were not hired 
until late August or early 
September. 

Also, more students have en- 
rolled than was anticipated by 
the departments or hooks were 
ordered late because the depart- 
ments were uncertain as to 
whether the course could be 



offered. 

Some publishers were tempo- 
rarily out of stock, forcing stu- 
dents to wait for i.-piints or new- 
editions. 

In some casea, department 
heads underestimated when plac- 
ing their orders. 

In others, either the number 
of second-hand hooks was over- 
estimated or students just didn't 
rare to sell their books. 

AccoidinK io some of the stu- 
dents who cannot buy these 
books, they "fall behind in the 
course. Even though the fault 
frequently lies with the instruc- 
tor, he has no sympathy towards 
the more unfortunate student." 



Mather Presents 
Budget Analysis 

I'res. Mather, at the recent 

Faculty Meeting, praaaRted an 

analysis of the university's an 
nual operating budget. Total 
State appropriations have neatly 
doubled, increasing from 

*;,,;, I'J.ikmi in I960, to 10,864,000 
in r.'.'.X. in the five short years 
of Mather's presidency. Sal- 
aries, moreover, have risen 
45.8%. All expenditures other 
than salaries have shown an in- 
ise of 64.7*70. 
In a separate personnel 
analysis, it was shown that 
there are thirteen student* to 
each leaching faculty member 
while the growth of the teach- 
ing staff has kept pace propor- 
tionately with the 24''. rise in 
student enrollment. The total 
increase in personnel, including 
professional ami MR profession- 
al staffs, has been 19.5% over 
the five-year period.

GREEK CRISIS 

During the annual Greek Week in spring, 
the Collegian usually comes out with an edi- 
torial reflecting on the activities of the fra- 
ternity system for the past year. This year, 
however, we feel that foresight is more use- 
ful than hindsight. 

The fraternity system on campus is rap- 
idly approaching a crisis. Host of the exist- 
ing buildings are decaying and literally fall- 
ing apart; and, as evidenced by the plight 
of Phi Sigma Delta, the town of Amherst 
will not let the fraternities move into any 
of the existing residential areas. The Greeks 
can better their present situation only by 
building a new home on the University 
planned fraternity row. This project re- 
quires money — money which can come only 
from the fraternities (and sororities) them- 
selv. 

At present a committee is developing a 
plan, called communal buying, which could 
save the fraternities up to $1,000 a year. 
Communal buying is a system by which all 
the houses would buy a certain item, such 
as milk, from one merchant at a much great- 
er discount than individual buying. However, 
as Sargent Russell, the committee adviser, 
says, the maintenance of such a project 
would require the cooperation of all the 
houses. , 

Naturally, the savings from communal 
buying will be only a fraction of the cost of 
a new home. But if this project should be- 
come a success, it will most likely form the 
basis of a spirit of cooperation, which will be 
necessary to the survival of the fraternity 
system. 

How will you Greeks face up to this cri- 
sis? Will yon lain the attitudr of "What do 
I i are ; I won't be here anyway," and leave 
y..ur successors a decadent organization? Or 
will you take the time and effort to assure 
that the next generation has the same bene- 
fits from the fraternity that you had. It's 

up to vou. 

T.M. 



by IAN McCLURE 

It has come to my attention that the class cf 1958 has given the 
university a revolving altar for the Old Chapel. This is undoubtedly a 
fine gift and a pleasing sentiment, but I think that it should have 
gone further. In the Buddhist religion, prayer wheels are authorized, 
and I think that the class of 1 1*58 missed a bet. in not providing one. 
A fractional honepawsr electric motor, geared up to turn a light 
wheel inscribed with a suitable prayer would do an enormous amount 
of praying in the course i.f a day. At 20,000 RPM, such a device would 
reel off over 500 prayer* per day f»r everyone in this University. 

But all is not lost. There are many centrifuges operated in the 
Laboratories. ITieeefore, I roppose that the students who are Interested 
in this matter write prayen of their choice on small pieces of paper 
and ■lip them into the centrifuge tubes. I must warn those who are 
Unfamiliar with the operation of centrifuges to balance opposite tubes 
by Inserting the same prayer in each, written on equal-sized pieces 
of paper. Otherwise, the vibration due to unequal loading will seri- 
ously wear the bearing.;, and the resulting irritation among the staff 
may nullify a great deal of the good thus obtained. 

This proposal may seem frivolous, or even sacreligious, to the 
narrow-minded, the conservative, and others of the like kidney. In 
defense, I say that times have changed. We are living on a new 
Earth, though Heaven is still probably unchanged. Organization has 
reformed the old virtues. Charity is big business now, and one may 
discharge a year's charitable duties by the simple device of signing 
a check (Charity prefers checks to cash.) Faith is poured so abundant- 
ly through every means of communication, that one need only keep 
his cars open to be filled with it. And hope — well, undoubtedly there is 
a committee working on that. 

In fact, there is no longer any need for anyone to trouble him- 
self with anything but doing his job properly. The Organization will 
take care of everything else. 

Therefore, my suggestion is in strict accord with the temper of 
the times. Even the United States government has shown a qualified 
approval of the notion. The words, "In God We Trust," are now 
printed on our new paper money, and, although this is not precisely a 
prayer, still there is probably some merit accruing to the nation for 
spinning these pious words so often on the presses. 

In short, automation ites at last caught up with religion, and 
further applications will follow. It is said that in a large city in 
California, a phone call to a certain number will elicit a three-minute 
tape-recorded sermon at any hour of the day or night.

The Other Side 



by JAMES A. MERINO 

There have been student criticisms of the method of teaching cer- 
tain elementary and intermediate language courses which have been 
recently introduced by the modern language departments. Obviously, 
since the language requirement in Liberal Arts has been altered from 
one year's formal instruction to a demonstrated proficiency in both 
speaking and reading, this is an issue which will eventually concern 
a large number of students at UMass. 

The criticisms have come principally from upperclassmen who 
have taken languages under the traditional method, and those stu- 
dents who are currently enrolled in elementary courses. The main 
criticism is of the new method, which initially emphasizes speaking 
proficiency in order to satisfy graduate school requirements. 

We a. ked Dr. Ferrigno, the administrator of the new method, 
along with several others in the foreign language department, for 
a comment. Space will not permit us to give their remarks in detail, 
but we ran give a summary. 

The new method, which is being carried out under conditions as 
controlled as possible in order that the results may be better analysed, 
was adopted in light of the revised language requirement of Liberal 
Arts. It is also thought that it is a distinct advantage to the student 
to be immediately, introduced to the sound of spoken language. 

Dr. Ferrigno and others further pointed out that any judgment 
or criticism of the new method at this early stage was premature, 
and that the problem of the student used to the traditional method 
is essentially a problem of right adjustment

An Obligation To Tomorrow 

Editor's Note: ThU fa t,,e f '"''' installment of 
Schweitzer's Saturday Review article. 

No longer can we' take any comfort from the 
fact that the scientists do not agree on the question 
of the danger of radiation, or that we must await 
the decision of international bodies before making 
positive statements about radiation. Despite all the 
claims ->f safety, the truth about the danger of nu- 
clear explosions marches imperturhably along, in- 
fluencing an ever-imnasing section of public 
opinion. In the long run. area the most well-orga- 
nized propaganda can do nothing against the truth. 

It is a strange fact that few people have taken 
into consideration that the question of nuclear test- 
ing El ROt one which concerns the nuclear po\\vr< 
exclusively, a question for them to decide at their 
own pleasure. Who has given these countries the 
right to experiment, in times of peace, with wea- 
pons involving the most serious risks for the whole 
world? What has international law-enthroned by 
the United Nations and so highly praised in our 
t j m0 — to say on this matter? Does it no longer 
look out on the world from its temple? Then take 
it out, so that it may face the facts and do its duty 
accordingly. 

International law should consider at once the 
compelling case of Japan. That country has suf- 
fered heavily from the effects of nuclear tests. The 
radioactive clouds created, by the Soviet tests in 
Northeast Siberia and by the American tests in the 
Pacific Ocean are carried by the winds over Japan. 
The resultant radioactive poisoning is considerable. 
Powerful radioactive rainfalls are quite common. 
The radioactive poisoning of the soil and the vege- 
tation is so heavy that the inhabitants of some 
districts are eating rice contaminated by radio- 
active strontium, a substance particularly dangerous 
for children. The ocean surrounding Japan is also 
at times dangerously radioactive, and thereby the 
very food supply of the country — in which fish has 
always played an important part — is being 
threatened. 

As every new nuclear test makes a bad situa- 
tion worse, the Japanese ministers, when hearing 
of plans for new tests to the north or south of 
Japan, have presented their country's urgent appeal 
in Washington or Moscow, beseeching the American 
or Soviet authorities to give up their plans. 

We generally learn about these appeals and the 
refusals through short newspaper items. Unfortu- 
nately, there have been few responsible editorials 
drawing our attention to the stories behind the 
news — the misery of human beings who are now in 
jeoeardv. In that way, we and the press are guilty 
of a lack of compassion. Even guiltier, however, is 
international law, which has kept silent and indif- 
ferent on this question, year after year. 

It is high time to recognize that the question of 
nuclear testing is a matter for world law to consider. 
Mankind is imperiled by the test. Mankind insists 
that they stop, and has every right to do so. 

If anything is left of international law in our 
civilization, then the nations responsible for nuclear 
tests must renounce them immediately, without mak- 
ing this dependent on agreements with respect to the 
larger questions of general disarmament. Nuclear 
tests have nothing to do with disarmament. The na- 
tions in question will continue to have those weapons 
which they now have. 

There is no time to lose. New tests must not 
be allowed to increase the already existing danger. 
It is important to realize that even without new 
tests the danger will increase during the coming 
years: a large part of the radioactive elements 
flung up in the atmosphere and stratosphere at the 
nuclear experiment is still there. It will come down 
only after several years — probably about fifteen. 

The immediate renunciation of further tests will 
create a favorable atmosphere for talk on controlling 
the stockpiles of nuclear weapons and banning their 
use. When this urgently necessary step has been 
taken, such negotiations can take place in peace. 

That the Soviet Union has announced its willing- 
ness to stop its tests is of great importance. The 
world now looks to the United States and Great 
Britain for the kind of moral initiative and action 
that go along with great leadership.

doubt, even amongst th«.s, who continue to say, "How in h— - can you 
listen to that stuff?" But like most successful events on the campus, 
much of it will soon be forgotten as people continue their daily cam- 
pus activities. What they will never forget, what they'll always re- 
member with a chill of pleasure were the great sounds created 
Wednesday night by Pomeroy's versatile Lennie Johnson and the 
"gentleman saxophone" of Coleman Hawkins.

I'lanrnity parties are under- — — — 
way once again. This mean* the 
beginning of the age old prob- 
lem facing every girl on cam- 
pus: what to wear on that big 
Saturday night date? 

Here is an outfit with a dual 
purpose*. A Saturday night date 
dress, topped by a short trapeze 
jacket for Sunday wear is one 
of the new cotton cashmere 
transition fashions designed by 
Mr. Mort. 

This attractive ensemble is a 
happy marriage of the season's 
newest styles, the chemise and 
the trapeze. The sleeveless 
chemise dress with its flatter- 
ing wafer slit neckline is ideal 
for date wear at semi-dressy 
parties. 

Donning the short trapeze 
jacket with striped collar and 
cuffs for accent, the busy girl 
about campus has transformed 
her date dress into a smart all 
purpose outfit suitable for in- 
numerable occasions. For fresh-

Jazz History Traced Primitive To Progressive 



Cage Hosts Hot 
Jazzv Historians 

by PETER MUNBOB '59 

In spite of a solid day of r 
and a continuing drizzle through- 
out the evening, 2200 witnessed 
Herb Pon ei oj ' and John Mc- 
Lellan's joint production "A Liv- 
ing History of Jazz" Wednesday 
ning in the ra«e. 

As John McLellan's narrative 
unfolded the historical evolution 
of jazz, the Pomeroy group fol- 
lowed suit with musical inter- 
pretations of the styles and eras 
that the co-producers feel are 
significant in tracing the true 
development of modern jazz. 

Beginning with the application 
of the African polyrhythmic 
influence on jazz, the first half 
of the program traced the 
growth of jazz up to the awing 
sra. The emotional and histori- 
cal high lights of this half were 
the New Orleans marching band, 
and the examples of the early 
Louis Armstrong and Duke 
Ellington bands. 

Lennie Johnson, who has been 
part of the Pomeroy sound since 
the advent of the big group, was 
outstanding in his interpreta- 
tions of the Louis Armstrong of 
1926. His ability to produce 
clear vibrant sounds was in 
' evidence throughout the pro- 
gram, and made him shine as 
the unsung hero of the evening. 

The effervescent improvisation 
supplied l»y guest star Coleman 
Hawkins left little to be desired. 
The fresh vitality with which he 
played throughout the evening 
was obvious as he did an inter- 
pretation of his own style with 
the band's rendition of Elling- 
ton's "A" Train. This n'imber 
was definitely a suitable climax 
for this half of the program. 

The end of intermission saw 
the Swing Era present itself to 

l.It.v^. ...

shek renounce plans to conquer 
China 

In return, the Chinese Com- 
munists would renounce all use 
of force in Asia and Taiwan, and 
agree to the reunification of 
Korea with free elections. 

Active discussion among panel 
members and the audience on 
possible ramifications of the 
present crisis in light of these 
talks concluded the conference.

the audit <<■ in the form of the 
Benny Gooaman style. From this 
point in the program, the histori- 
cal aspect stepped up its pace to 
gather the intellectual momen- 
tum which was lacking during 
the first section. 

Describing the freer interpre- 
tation of Charlie Parker, Mc- 
Lellan set the scene for Bobby 
Freedman to step out and bring 
the Bird back to life. Freedman 
again showed his versatility as 
he displayed the style attached 
to Jerry Mulligan and West 
Coast Jazz. 

As McLellan's narrative drew 
to a close, the concert was 
climaxed by the big band's rendi- 
tion of the Pomeroy original, 
"No One Will Room With Me." 
Here, as before, Hawkins's tenor 
saxophone was a highlight which 
sparked a tremendous ovation 
from the audience. 

McLellan and Pomeroy deserve 
much ritilit for the way they 
have preserved the major ele- 
ments in the evolution of jazz.

"Ifa all tha Senate's fault!" 

This was the charge uttered 
by D. J. Torres '59, WMUA disc 
jockey, early this morning in an 
exclusive interview concerning 
the Concert Association. 

"Students shouldn't have to go 
to Amherst College to hear a 
concert like the Boston 'Pops'," 
the QTV man said, "especially 
when they've already paid for it 
out of their taxes." 

Torres claimed if last year's 
Senate had appropriated money 
early enough to the Concert As- 
sociation, booking dates could 
have been arranged much sooner 
with the Calendar committee, 
and there wouldn't have been 



any conflict with the small high 
school basketball tournament 
scheduled for the Cage that 
night. 

"Maybe this year's Senate will 
get on the ball and do something 
about it," Torres commented. 

In regards to Wednesday 
night's Jazz Concert, Torres 
stated it was the greatest thing 
the Concert Association has done 
to date. 

"The Concert Association 
should do more of the same," he 
pointed out, "It's a lot better 
than the Spanish dancers they've 
had." 

Torres also added his views 
did not reflect WMUA policy, 
but rather his personal feelings. 



Pomero) \s Band 
Thrills Throngs 

by BETH COUGHLIN '60 

A capacity crowd of jazz en- 
thusiaata was <m hand Wednes- 
day night in the CAge to soak in 
the strains of the Herb Ponwr- 
oy orchestra (not to mention 
the rain outside), as it traced 
in musical form the develop- 
tnent of jazz from its beginning 
with the blues 50 years ago to 
the present day "far-out" tan- 
gents. 

Coleman Hawkins, noted 
saxophonist and featured guest, 
kept the crowd more than at- 
tentive with musical interpreta- 
tions of the style that he set 
when he was featured with the 
Ellington band. 

An' amused audience listened 
as several members of the band, 
using homemade instruments 
made from such commodities as 
a washboard and a clothesline 
rope, reproduced the sounds of 
the pre-ragtime bands of the 
late 1800's. 

Pomeroy, a western Mass. 
native and graduate of the 
Stan Kenton band, has had his 
own 16-piece group for approx- 
imately three years. 

Doric Alviani, Professor of 
Music and adviser to the Con- 
cert Association, had this com- 
ment to make: "Never saw Pom« 
eroy play so well. He gets bettet 
all the time."

On Collegian 

Writing jobs are not the only . 
positions open on the staff of the 
Collegian for those who intend 
to take the Training Program 
that starts next Tuesday after- 
noon at 4. 

There are still many jobs to be 
filled in typing, filing, library 
work, morgue work, and photo- 
graphy. Special classes in photo- 
graphy are now being conducted 
by Photography Editor Ed York 
'60. 

Students starting the nine 
week course this semester will 
find that the Colic g inn offices, 
located in the Student Union, are 
situated in an ideal spot for 
news coverage. Not only is the 
location ideal, but the equipment 
used by the student newspaper 
is modern and up to date. 
News Reporters Needed 
In vital need by the newspaper 
at the moment are news re- 
porters. There are many campus 
beats which must he covered in 
order to give the best possible 
news coverage to the Collegian 
readers. 

Besides being an assist to any 
English writing course given at 
the university, the trainees will 
also learn how to condense 
stories into simple, easily-read 
articles found in newspapers. 

In the Training Program stu- 
dents will learn how newspapers 
operate and how material is con- 
densed into the basic who's, 
what's, when's, where's. why's, 
and how's, in order to appeal to 
the people who don't have time 
to linger over some stories when 
they read them. 

Any students who have ques- 
tions on the CotUgUm or the 
writing course are asked to see 
any one of the editors of the 
newspaper, who are usually 
found in the office.

are important, in college and after. That's why 
the wise choice is K&E, America's oldest and largest 
maker of engineering supplies and equipment. 



When It comes to Slide Rules... 
take the K&E Decitrig®: 

Its versatile scales team up to give faster solu-

D scale and three LL scales cover a log log range

And... look at K&E Drawing

But remember, there's more to drawing Instru-

"extras," such as accuracy, materials, workman-

genuine value. Every K&E set — and they come 
in a wide price range— offers you the "extra"

REDMEN FACE RUGGED BEARS 



by DICK BRESCIANI 

The UMaas footballers em- 
barked early this morning for Or- 
ono, Me., and the season's cur- 
tain-raiser with the Maine Black 
Bears. The squad left by chart- 
ered bus at 8:00 and was ex- 
pected to arrive in Orono at 4:00 
this afternoon. 

At 1:80 tomorrow afternoon, 
the Redmen will don their war 
paint and go bear-hunting. How- 
ever, Maine is always tough in 
the early stages of the season, 
especially on its home field. Thus, 
if our warriors are to feast on 
bear meat they will have to be 
prepared for a rough and tough 
battle with that mean old Black 
Bear from Orono. 

Twelve Lettermen 
Maine, coached by Hall Wester- 
inan, a 1946 grad of the Univ. 
of Michigan, has 12 lettermen 
and six starters from last fall's 
team. The club is captained by 
senior end Niles Nelson of Win- 
chester, Mass. 

Other Mass. boys on the team 
include back John Welch of New- 
* buryport, guard Vin Trincia of 
Framingham and center Roger 
Ellis of Westwood. Welch and 
Nelson are lettermen. 

The Black Bears are reportedly 
strong in the backfield, at end 
and center. Their weak points are 
the guard and tackle slots. 
Earliest Opener 
This is the earliest opening 
date for a Maine team in years. 
Usually they play their initial 
contest on the last Saturday in 
September. Coach Westerman, 
whose seven year slate at Maine 
shows 33 wins, 13 losses and 13 
deadlocks, has been bemoaning 
the fact that he hasn't had suf- 
ficient time to prepare his eleven 
for the Redmen invasion. 

Meanwhile, UMass chief Char- 
lie O'Rourke is ready to throw 
two cmiplete units into the fra- 
cas in platoon fashion. O'Rourke 
also has enough depth so that he 
can manipulate his men to their 
best advantage. 

It will he the first meeting of 
the two schools on the gridiron 
since 1945. UMass leads the all- 
time series with two wins and a 
tie in three games.

Change In Rental Policy 

$31,395 To Rauch; MARRIED STUDENT'S DORMS 



Given By U.S. For 
Lethal Gene Study 

A grant of $31,395 was 
awarded Dr. Harold Rauch, as- 
sociate professor of Zoology at 
the University of Massachusetts 
by the U.S. Public Health Serv- 
ice. The grant covers a three 
year study of the action of a 
lethal gene in mice, which 
causes uncontrolled movements 
similar to those shown by 
humans afflicted with cerebral 
palsy. 

The gene, dilute-lethal, pro- 
duces severe upset of the 
nervous system in the mouse re- 
suiting in seizures which re- 
semble epileptic fits in man. In 
addition, Dr. Rauch reports that 
the gene causes a loss of co- 
ordination, in which the mouse 
exhibits uncontrolled actions 
similar to those of palsy-afflicted 
humans. 

A native of New York City, 
Dr. Rauch received his B.S. 
from Queens College, his M.S. 
from the University of Illinois, 
and his Ph.D from Brown Uni- 
versity. He is a member of 
Sigma Xi, national scientific 
honor society, the New York 
Academy of Sciences, and the 
Genetics Society of America. 

Dr. Rauch plans to carry on 
the second year of this investi- 
gation at the Jackson Memorial 
Laboratory at Bar Harbor, Me. 



UNDERGO HIKE FOR YEAR 



by DAVID MANN 
(Guest Reporter) 

A policy calling for an in- 
crease in rentals at the married 
students dormitories was set 
forth on June 1, 1958 at a meet- 
ing of the Board of Trustees of 
the University of Massachusetts. 

This change applies to Suffolk 
and Hampshire Houses and con- 
sists of the following: 1) those 
living in these dormitories at the 
end of May, 1958, would not be 
affected by the increase in 
rentals; 2) those moving in after 
May, 1958, would be subject to 
a $10 per month increase in rent 
effective September 1, 1958; S) 
to hold the apartment during the 
summer recess, effective June 
1959, rentals must be paid re- 
gardless of occupancy. 

In a recent interview, Presi- 
dent Mather eleborated and 
commented on this policy. He 
said that the rent increase was 
due to a recommendation by the 



Massachusetts House Ways and 
Means Committee asking for a 
review of rentals on all build- 
ings at the University, since 
they were running below cost. 
The details of this increase were 
administrative policy. 

He further stated that the 
new rate did not apply to those 
living in the dorms prior to last 
June because of the agreed 
rental rate, but that anyone 
moving in after this decision, 
would be subject to the increase. 

The summer rental change, 
mentioned in point 3, was not 
expected by the married stu- 
dents since most of them work 
out of the area during the sum- 
mer to supplement the oost of 
the school year. 

In answer to this, President 
Mather said that in three years 
the University will be on a three 
semester schedule and it will be 
necessary to keep the apart- 
ments rented on a yearly basis. 



RAYMOND DENIES 
QUEEN FIX CHARGE 

by ROGER PARKER 
Special Assignment Reporter 

Denying charges that the Homecoming Queen Contest 
was a fix. Chairman Ted Raymond '59, a sports writer for 
the University Sports Publicity Office, stated late last night 
that those students who questioned the honesty of the 
judges in choosing the five finalists last Thursday morning, 
were sadly misinformed. 



Concert Assoc. Offers 
Chamber Music On Wed. 



WOMEN GRADS 
REAP SUCCESS 

How are the women who have 
graduated from the University 
using their education? 

Out of the 228 that received 
diplomas last year 100 are teach- 
ing; 34 are married; 16 have 
gone on to further study; 15 have 
not been heard from; 14 are in 
science; 10 in math and engi- 
neering; 8 arc in insurant 
work; 4 are doing general of- 
fice Work; 4 are doing group 
work; 3 are working for the gov- 
ernment; 3 each in advertising 
and market research; 2 each are 
in extension, floriculture, dietet- 
ics, nursing, and library work; 1 
each in secretarial, merchandis- 
ing, air lines, and home service 
demonstration work. 



The University Concert As- 
sociation announces that the 
second presentation in its cur- 
rent series will be given on 
Wed. night at Bowker by the 
Claremont Quartet rather than 
by the regularly scheduled East- 
man Quartet. 

Members of the Claremont 
Quartet have each achieved in- 
dividual recognition as soloists 
and chamber musicians. The en- 
semble, which is now the quartet- 
in-residence at the University of 
Delaware, was formed as a re- 
sult of the merging of two close 
musical friendships. 

The desire of this Quartet to 
.\|il<>!<> the highest forms of 
musical expression has brought 
about an integration of artistry 
that has impressed critics and 
audiences whararer they have 
appeared. "Their achievements in 
balance, sty].', and fine tone," 0M 



critic wrote after their recent ap- 
pearance at the Library of Con- 
gress, "places them in the ranks 
of tho i fine chamber ensembles 
that have become so much a part 
of our life in the last few years." 



"It's always afterwards that 
students start kicking up a fuss," 
Raymond said, "not during an 
event when »hey have a chance to 
do something about It." 

This comment was in answer 
to the deluge of phone calls the 
Collegian received over the week- 
end from irate girls who claimed 
some of the candidates nominated 
had never been notified as to 
when and where the judging was 
to take place. 

The president of Sigma Delta 
Tau, Yorkette Solomon '59, 
pointed out that "18 girls were 
nominated for the contest, yet the 
girls said the judges only picked 
from eight." 

If there be any basis of truth 
behind the accusation that the 
contest was fixed, she continued, 
then the five finalists should be 
chosen over again, and any vot- 
ing that's been going on, declared 
null and void. 

Countered Raymond. "Four of 
the candidates did not have their 
nomination ballots turned in be- 
fore the Friday deadline" 

He also said that the same 
girl was nominated by five dif- 
ferent houses, and of the ten 
left, though all were notified, 
only eight girls appeared at thu 
Cage. Harriet Cutler '60, who was 
not available for comment, and 



Emma Jennings '60 were missing. 
"I waa never notified," Misa 

Jennings said yesterday. 

Nancy Wright '59 claimed that 
she placed the nomination ballot 
for the Crabtree candidate, Miss 
Jennings, in the ballot box on the 
SU lobby counter Thursday 
morning, the 11th of September, 
around 11. 

"On some of the nominations 
I received, the girls did not have 
their residence marked," Ray- 
mond observed, "and that's what 
happened in Emma Jenning's 
case." 

Raymond added that he tried 
to locate Miss Jennings and was 
told that she lived in Hamlin. 
He phoned Hamlin, she was not 
in, and the girl who answered 
the phone evidently thought Miss 
Jennings lived there, for she said 
she would take a message. So 
Raymond claimed he left one. 

.Indue* for the contest, along 
with Ted Raymond, were ex-sen- 
ator Fran Guiliano '59; Francis 
Driscoll. Alumni Office; Everett 
Kosarirk. News Service photog- 
rapher: and Richard Page, Sports 
Publicity Director. 

According to Ted Raymond, 
only .'Ml votes were cast for the 
Homecoming Queen yesterday af- 
ternoon out of a possible 4,500.

PATIENCE IS A VIRTUE.. 

Patience may be a virtue, but it seems 
that the unfortunate students eating at the 
Dining Commons are being asked to be more 
virtuous than is necessary* 

The reasons for the prolonged waiting 
for the dubious pleasure of a Commons- 
cooked meal are not fully known. It is 
known, however, that some students are 
growing accustomed to standing in line for 
thirty and forty-five minute periods before 
every meal. 

In past yeaiS the line problem has been 
seen to resolve itself after the- first week of 
classes. This year it se.ms to be increasing. 

If the cause of the trouble is inadequate 
facilities for the large number of students 
required to eat at university dining halls, a 
partial solution might be to allow those 
sophomores and juniors who wish to eat off 
campus to do so. If this is not the cause, the 
fault must lie in management, in which case 
we may hope for a Ipeedy solution. In the 
meantime . . . patience, patience, patience.

Mr. McClure,

, ., i, 

I shudder to think, as you have 
, that automation might pos- 
v be creeping into religion. 
But I shudder, not because auto- 
mation will diminish the mean- 
ingfuhiess of religion but, more 



important, it mig 



hr I, 



reflec- 



tion of the society in which re- 
ligion functions. 

I suggest that instead of say- 
ing so much about what religion 
lacks or possesses or about that 
which it shouldn't possess, you 
perhaps should do something to 
make up for this deficiency. Hav- 
ing a religion isn't a tenth as im- 
portant as being religious. 
There's a vital difference. You 
seem to be making cynicism your 
religion. A much better substi- 
tute for cynicism would be a little 
more faith in yourself and your 
environment. 

Sincerely yours,

WHAT WE DID! 

To the Editor: 

While spending a couple of 
days last week in Northampton's 
Cooley Dickinson Hospital, I 
found in the bed next to me an 
older gentleman who admitted to 
iH-ing an alumnus of '91. His 
name is Willard Gay, and among 
scenes of his student days he re- 
members the incident that led to 
the expulsion of Harlan Fiske 
Stone who subsequently became 
honor graduate of Amherst 
. and \vh<>, in later life, 
was • of the I'.S

OUR MISTAKE 

A few days ago as I was walk- 
ing across campus I found my- 
self silently recounting the rea- 
I why this looked like a year 
of promise for the U. of M. cam- 
pus: the freshman assimilation 
with the campus community had 
taken place with relatively little 
flurry; the advanced placement 
program was making progress; 
ipper-classmen were digging 
into their books and extra-cur- 
ricular res])onsibilities with im- 
pressive seriousness; the concert 
pro g ra m had grown surprisingly 
bigger and more interesting over 
the summer; my colleagues were 
piling up plans for giving new 
life to courses and school pro- 
grams; there was still a little 
trickle of water running through 
the college pond. I had even tak- 
en the first opportunity to put 
down $1.50 for a year's subscrip- 
tion to the Collegian to assure 
myself of a steady flow of cam- 
pus "news". (I must use quotes 
because my copy of the Collegian 
often reaches me at Skinner from 
one to three days late). In gen- 
eral, it did look like a good year 
ahead. 

Imagine, if you can, the drop 
that my spirits took when I read 
an editorial in the second issue 
of your paper (September 15) ! 
Was "What is a Coed?" indica- 
tive of the kind of reading mat- 
ter I was to be confronted with 
three times a week? It was so out 
of step with the picture I had 
been conjuring up of the caliber 
of the student body — which, after 
all, is largely responsible for the 
climate on campus. 

What did the editors have in 
mind with this "editorial?" 
Were they desperate for material 
so early in the year? Were they 
trying to be "clever" or "humor- 
ous"? Were they trying to im- 
press wide-eyed, open-minded 
f reshmen with some of the pecul- 
iar "sophistications" of the up- 
perclassmen? Were they just try- 
ing to shock some of the readers 
into responses to help fill columns 
in the paper? 

Whatever the intent. I would 
like to speak out loudly against 
the poor taste, low level humor, 
and poverty of journalistic ideas 
which prompted such an "editor- 
ial" ft) I If She Cttttfimt editors 
must grovel in the gutter or 
plagiarize low humor publications 
from other campuses in their 

.•ch for something to write 
about, 1 don't think they should 
be allowed to multiply the results 
Of their ikxu- judgement (?) a 
thousand times in print at the 
. \j'. i:>. of the student body and 
faculty! 

I am sure that I am one of 
who look for an apology to 
>our readers and a concerted ef- 
fort toward more appropriate 
•orializing" in the future.

An Obligation To Tomorrow 

Editor's Note: WWa u fl,t fourth installment of 
an article hy Dr. Albert Schweitger. It i$ n print- 
ed from the Satvrday Review. 

Today we are faced with the menacing possibil- 
ity of an outbreak of an atomic war between Soviet 
Russia and the United States. It can only be averted 
if the two powers decide to renounce atomic arms. 

How did this situation arise? 

In 1945 America suc< t\<^\ In producing an atom- 
ic bomb with Brsnium-286. On August 8, 1946, this 
homb was dropped on Hiroshima. Another atomic 
bomb was dropped on Nagasaki on August !». 

When America came into the possession u f such 
a bomb it held a military advantage over other 
countri' 

In July 1949 the Soviet Union also test-exploded 
its first nuclear bomb. Its power was approximately 
equal to the American bomb then existing. 

On October 3, 1952, England exploded it- first 
atomic bomb on the Isle of Montebello (situated 
on the northwest coast of Australia). 

In the quest for nuclear supremacy, both the 
Soviet Union and the United States moved towards 
the development of a nuclear weapon many times 
more powerful — the hydrogen bomb. A series of 
tests was undertaken by the United States in the 
Marshall Islands beginning in May 1951, and cul- 
minating in a successfully exploded hydrogen bomb 
in March 1954. 

The actual power of the explosion was far 
stronger than had been originally calculated. 

At APPROXIMATELY the same time, the Soviet 
Union also started its experimentations, exploding 
its first hydrogen bomb on August 12, 1953. 

Todays, guided missiles can be launched from 
their starting points and directed with accuracy at 
distant targets. The larger explosives are carried 
by missiles containing the fuel rush with tremen- 
dous velocity through a narrow opening. Science is 
in the process of discovering a fuel which is similar 
and more efficacious to deal with. 

It is said that the Soviet Union already has 
available rockets with a range up to 600 mil£s. Soon 
to come are rockets with a range up to 1,080 miles — 
if they are not already in use. 

It is said that America is attempting to develop 
rockets with a range of 1,440 miles. 

Whether the intercontinental ballistic missile, 
with its range of 4,800 miles, already exists cannot 
be ascertained. The Soviet Union has claimed it al- 
ready has such a missile. 

Even without respect to intercontinental ballistic 
missiles, submarines could launch nuclear attacks 
on the United States. 

The long-range rockets attain unbelievable speed. 
It is expected that an intercontinental rocket would 
not take more than twenty minutes to cross the 
ocean with a payload of nuclear explosive weighing 
from one to five tons. 

How could an atomic war break out today? Not 
long ago there was talk of local or limited wars 
that could be contained. But today there is little 
difference between a local war and a global war. 
Rocket missiles will be used up to a range of 1,440 
miles. The destruction should not be underestimated, 
even if caused only by a Hiroshima type bomb. 

It can hardly be expected that an enemy will re- 
frain from using atomic bombs or the most devastat- 
ing hydrogen bombs on large cities at the very out- 

of a war. One hydrogen bomb now exists that 
is a thousand times more powerful than the atomic 
bomb. It will have a destructive radius of many 
miles. The heat will be 100 million degrees. One 
can imagine how large would be the number of 
city-dwellers who would be destroyed by the pres- 
sure of the explosion, by flying fragments of glass, 
by heat and fire and by radioactive waves, even 
if the attack is only of short duration. The deadly 
radioactive contamination, as a consequence of the 
explosion, would have a range of some 45.000 square 
miles. 

An American general has said to some Congress- 
men: "If at an interval of ten minutes 110 hydrogen 
bombs are dropped over the USA there would be a 
casuality list of about 70 million people; besides, 
some thousands of square miles would be made use- 
less for a whole generation. Countries like England, 
West Germany, and France conJd be finished off 
with fifteen to twenty hydrogen bombs."

Scanning The Dorms Ws Greek To Me 

by ARNIE SCAN 

Another school year has begun and the men's 
dorms are swinging into action. Highlights of this 
week center mainly on the elections of officers. The 
most closely contested battle is taking place in 
Yan Meter where candidates are conducting all-out 
campaigns. Spirit is high and an exciting election 
is foreseen. . 

VAN METER: The Mountaineers can boast of 
the best physically-conditioned men at UMass. Hav- 
ing climbed that unforgettable hill for the past two 
weeks, they have the weariest but strongest legs 
on campus. (Van Meter Award for Service goes this 
week to Art "Tex" Tacelli, the first freshman this 
year to discover the apple orchard). 

CHADBOURNE residents have elected the fol- 
lowing to office: President: Don Mertzer, 60; Vice- 
President: Bob Kimball, '60; Treasurer: Russell 
O'Brien, '60; Secretary: John Givan, '59. 

BAKER may boast of having within its walls 
the predominant make-up of the freshman football 
team. All eyes look hopefully to Baker for the men 
who will take the field for UMass in the coming 
year. 

MILLS is experimenting with a new policy. They 
have elected only one officer, President Howard 
Foster, and two chairmen, Herbert Willman and 
Bob Amirault. 

BROOKS h-.:.* elected a full slate of officers and 
chairmen who are already making plans for the 
purchase of a TV. President: Tom Geul, *59; Vice- 
President: Stan Sxydlowski, '61; Secretary: Charles 
Row, '61; Treasurer: George Karzyk; Social Chair- 
man: Joe Baldwin; Athletic Chairmen: Charles Row, 
Dave Flagg, George Hobart.

This column is the first of a weekly series cover- 
ing the pertinent functions of the fraternities on 
this campus. In addition, the undertakings of the 
Inter- Fraternity Council will also be given special 
attention. It is this group of representatives from 
the various, houses that will strive, this year more 
than ever before, to strengthen the relations between 
the fraternities, thereby strengthening the frater- 
nity system as a whole. Only when the houses be- 
come more unified will they be able to act with 
more power. 

The first activities of the season in which all of 
the fraternities will participate include the skits and 
sing. They are taking place in the fall semester in 
order to arouse the interests of the underclassmen. 
Thus, when rushing comes around in the spring 
session, the freshmen will have a glimpse of some 
of the abilities of the houses. 

It is with this idea of unity that the Inter-Fra- 
ternity Council is planning ahead. Already they 
have revised the rushing system, in hopes, once 
again, of bringing about a more active interest by 
the underclassmen. 

The new slate of officers of I.F.C. are as follows: 
President: Ron Craven, TKE 
Vice-President: Bob Me>«.i„, TEP 
Secretary: Bill Guazzo, Kappa Sig 
Treasurer: Dick Conte, Phi Sig

Black Bears Spoil UMass 
Opener, 19-6, At Orono 

by TED RAYMOND 

Orono, Me., Sept. 20-Led by halfback Gerry deGrandpre and quarterback Bob 
Pickett the University of Maine Black Bears went on the prod today and clawed the 
UMass' Redmen, 19-6, before 5,000 fans at Alumni Field. 

The Redmen made five mistakes that could be credited to opening game jitters and 
inexperience and it cost them a ball game. The Bears capitalized on these errors and 
transformed them into hard figures on th e scoreboard 
deGrandpre Tough 



Spearheading the Maine at- 
tack was junior halfback Gerry 
deGrandpre who lugged the pig- 
skin 15 times, compiling a net 
of 91 yards or an average of 
5.3 yards per earn*. He gave the 
Redmen a heap of trouble, twice 
rolling for long gains on a parti- 
cularly dangerous piece of fraud 
the Bears used to advantage all 
afternoon, a shallow double 

reverse. 

Pickett pitched to end Maury 
Dore for the first Bear tally and 
picked off a Redmen aerial and 
returned it 25 yards to set up 
the second Maine score. 
Bears Score First 
The Bears opened the scoring 
door late in the first period - v 
Pickett threw to Dore in the end 
.one to complete a 22 yard 
acoring play. This TD was set 
up by UMass mistake number 
one. Losing the ball on downs 
after moving deep into Maine 
territory, the Redmen held and 
the Bears were forced to kick, 
UMass took over on their own 
27 and on third down the Bear 
line came charging through to 
swamp Bill Maxwell when he 
went back to past. Maine center 
Roger Ellis came out of the pile 
with the ball on the UMass 25 
and the ftred-up Bears needed 
only three plays to score. 

In the second period, the Red- 
men put on a sustained drive 
that carried them down to the 
Maine five but on second down 
and goal to go the Redmen com- 
mitted mistake number two. 
Bum Richardson lost the ball 
when he was jammed up on i 



Then Pickett came into the pic- 
ture again as .he intercepted 
Jack Conway's pass intended for 
Jim Hickman and scooted back 
to the UMass 35. Two plays 
later the Redmen were assessed 
a 15 yard penalty for roughing 
that brought the ball to the 
Mass. 14 yard line with a first 
down for the Bears. DeGrandpre 
lugged it down to the eight and 
on the next play speedy reserve 
halfback Wayne Champeon 
flashed across the goalline for 
the second Maine score. 

Time ran out on the score- 
board in the first half with the 
Redmen vainly trying to tally 
via the aerial route on the next 
series of plays. 

Both clubs stalled in the early 
stages of the second half and 
after an exchange of punts the 
Redmen moved into Maine terri- 
tory- Bear halfback Jack Welch 
halted the Redmen drive as he 
intercepted a Bill Maxwell pass 
on the Maine 15. The Bears 
then staged the longest march of 
the contest moving the ball from 
their 15 down to the UMass two 
where the Redmen held. The 
drive was highlighted by two 
deGrandpre gallops of 25 and 2Q 

yards. 

Then the Redmen compounded 
error number four with error 
number five. After stopping the 
Bears just short of pay dirt, 
Tom Delnickas fumbled when he 
was hit hard on an off-tackle 
slant and Maine fullback Randy 
White pounded on the loose ball 
on the UMass three yard line. 
This time the Bears were not 



The final whistle sounded with 
the Bears in possesion at mid- 
field. In the last series of downs 
following the kickoff after the 
UMass TD deGrandpre lugged 
the pigskin eight times to keep 
the ball in the Bears possesion 
for the last three minutes of 

play.

ROOFTOP RAY-VINGS 

Oh the whole the Redmen 
sophomores looked very good 
in their first varsity outing . . . 

Soph halfback Delnickas was 
impressive as he and always tough 
Buzz Richardson were the work- 
horses for the Redmen . . . 



Richardson Cops 
First E-S Award 

Buzz Richardson, hard hitting Redman senior fullback, 
is the first winner of the weekly E-S Campus Cleaners 

award. 

The award, given to the player chosen as the outstand- 
ing performer in each UMass football tilt throughout the 
season on the basis of the game movies, will consist of a five 
dollar gift certificate r ede e mab le 
in cleaning at the establishment. 

Donor of the award is Ernie 
Pirro, former Redmen grid stal- 
wart who was an outstanding 
lineman for UMass in 1951-52. 
He is the proprietor of the E-S 
Campus Cleaners which is lo- 
cated directly in back of the 
Little Store on North Pleasant 
St. 

Movies of the U Mass-Maine 
tilt show that Richardson was 
outstanding both defensively and 
offensively for the Redmen. He 
was the leading ground gainer 
for UMass with 65 yards in 14 
carries giving him a 4.7 average 
per carry. He was also top 
operator in the Redmen defense 
in his corner linebacker slot, 
making a great percentage of 
the tackles. He contributed the 
Redmen defensive gem of the 




game when he put on a burst of 
speed to overtake and bring 
down Maine halfback Gerry 
deGrandpre who had broken 
into the secondary and was roll- 
ing down the left sideline to- 
wards paydirt. 



when he was jammed up on. • ■»- baU 

plunge and Maine came up «i» denied a. the P ^ 



the pigHkin again thwarting the 
UMass scoring threat. De- 
Grandpre moved the Bears out 
of the danger zone as he broke 
loose on a 25 yard jaunt before 
Richardson hauled him down 
from behind. 

Penalty Sets Up Score 
Mistake number three came 
soon after as the Redmen were 
moving the ball out towards 
midfleld. Gerry Walls and Tom 
Delnickas combined on a half- 
back to halfback pass that was 
good for 15 yards to midfield. 



,,v,r the line in three plays with 
deGrandpre notching the tally. 
Therriault kicked the point and 
Maine led 19-0. 

Redmen Notch Six 
Late in the final stanza the 
Redmen put on a last ditch drive 
to preserve their record of not 
having been shut out since 1954. 
Tom Delnickas crashed oyer 
from the one yard line climaxing 
a 60 yard march. He earned the 
right to the six points as he 
carried seven times in the drive 
for 35 yards.

CAMPUS POND TO RETURN SOON 



by BETH COUGH LIN 

"When finished we hope the 
pond will be a thing of beauty 
instead of just a puddle on the 
campus. We certainly intend to 
keep it." These were the words of 
President Mather stated at a re- 
cent interview concerning the cel- 
ebrated body ot water whose ab- 
sence has caused such a stir on 
the campus. 

As for the "when of its being 
completed, the weather will be 
the greatest determining factor 
gince work is impossible while 
there is any considerable amount 
of rain. The outlet to the pond 
being considerably smaller than 
the inlet, the rain water accum- 



ulates rapidly," Mr. G ire Mi 

len, Superintendent of Grounds, 
explained. He offers only the 
slightest encouragement to skat- 
ers that the pond will be ready 
for use this winter. 

A settling place for debris and 
drainage (not sewage) of the 
town of Amherst since its arti- 
ficial construction nearly sixty- 
eight years ago, the pond has 
never been thoroughly cleaned. 
Work was begun this past sum- 
mer the day following commence- 
ment after the combined decision 
of the campus engineer and trea- 
surer met with the President's 
approval. . 

Upon completion the pond will 



be somewhat larger, and deeper 
around the edge One reason for 
increasing the depth is to control 
the growth of weeds which thrive 
in shallow water. Poisons used 
in the past for this purpose have 
bean generally ineffective. Pro- 
fessor Edward L. Davis of the 
Botany Department denied the 
rumor that any rare species of 
plant has been made extinct by 
the current excavating. Although 
two species relatively rare in the 
United States (the commonly 
called water fern and horsechest- 
nut) have been found to thrive 
in the pond, they may easily be 
put back from specimens present- 
ly being grown in the Depart- 
ment's conservatories — if the 



Grounds Department approves. 

Concerning the tradition of the 
pond, Mr. Robert Leavitt of the 
Alumni Office had this to say: 
"Whenever I go on alumni trips 
members of all classes never fail 
to ask if the pond is still here. 
Along with Old Chapel it is the 
school landmark and focal point 
of the campus." Also in this con- 
nection Mr. Leavitt mentioned 
that just two months ago he re- 
ceived from a graduate a piece 
of rope used in the rope-pull of 
1900. In the past, when the col- 
lege enrollment was much smaller 
these rope-pulls were an import- 
ant campus tradition. There will 
be none this year. 

No exact figure as to the coat 



of the project is, or probably will 
be, available, but Mr. Mellen es- 
timates that it will be between 
fifteen and twenty thousand dol- 
lars. Sometime in the future Mr. 
Mellen hopes that a large basin 
will be constructed, prior to the 
pond, to help filter out the silt 
before it reaches the pond. It 
would then be a relatively inex- 
pensive and minor task to pump 
it out every two years. Accord- 
ing to the President no such 
plans have yet been made, how- 
ever. 

Connoisseurs of rarer dishes 
might be interested to know that 
the snappers inhabiting the pond 
have been found by the workers 
to make excellent turtle soup. 



Band Marches

PREJUDICE IN THE CLASSROOM 

To the Editor: 

One of the primary tenets of education is to teach the student 
to think clearly ami effectively for himself. Prejudice in our class- 
rooms all but defeats this goal. 

Then- m in this university certain professors who insist on al- 
lowing their own persona] views and prejudices to enter, with undue 
emphasis, into their lectures. 

Certainly, learning to appreciate the viewpoints of another indiv- 
idual is also a part of education, but when these viewpoints take the 
form of a denunciation of a religious sect, or even of religion in 
general, the limits of acceptable academic decorum have been reached, 

Some say that the sign of an educated man is his good taste. 
Why then do ■ certain fow of our pro f S MOfS who profess to be edu- 
cated show such a marked lack of good taste in the classroom? Can 
it be that they enjoy putting their co-ed classes in an uncomfortable 
position? 

This then is a plea for those professors who are guilty of the 
breach of academic etiquette mentioned above to reevaluate their 
lectures and see if thoy would want their own sons and daughters in 
their lectures.

Against Uniformity 

When the Collegia* severely criticised 
the senate a senate official fexdavinwd, "the 

Collrfjian has no right to do BO." 

When the CoUegian round fault with an 

iretta guild production an official <>f the 
organization stated* "a negative review of 
the program should not be written." 

And so on . . . 

When cither students or faculty members 
put time into something which doesn't meas- 
ure up to the standards of the observer or 
reviewer it li thought unfair for the observ- 
er or reviewer to publicize his negative 
opinion. 

This age of conformity, if it goes on un- 
checked, will herald the end of free speech 
and of the great public dsjbfttfl which is es> 

it ; al in a vigorous free society. It will 
also deprive those who make public policies 
of the criticism they need if they are not to 
be carried away by the sounds of their own 

voices. It require! than to give reason- for 

what they do that aiv W Ceptabtt to deliber- 
ative intelligence. 

As Dorothy Thompson, a syndicated col- 
umnist put it, "we need mora controversy 
in this country, not lest; and if W« can do 
with more faith we can also do with more 
skepticism toward '(fi> | UWtf b$J

do we Reserve saving? 

To the Editor: 

Thank you, Ian McClure, for your September 19th comments on 
Buddhist prayer wheels and dial-a-sermon telephones. I concur with 
your sentiments toward the Unholy Alliance, i.e., the wedding of au- 
tomation and religion. Perhaps nothing is to remain undefiled in this 
20th century world of gadgetry. 

We sit in trepidation wondering if somehow we will survive the 
farcical situation we have muddled ourselves into in Quemoy — but if 
di-il-a-sen.ion telephones are the best our civilization can produce, I 
sometimes wonder if We deserve saving.

An Obligation To Tomorrow 

EoriOBl N«>tk: rail '"' ffli ' fif 1tl "i«t<illm<nt of 
an article hy Dr. Alhert Schweitzer. It it reprinted 

from th, Saturday kkvikw. 

President Eisenhower has pointed out, after 
watching maneuvers under atomic attack, that de- 
fense measures in a future atomic war become use- 
less. In these circumstances all one can do is to 
pray. 

Indeed, not much more can be done in view of 
an attack by hydrogen bombs than to advise all 
people living to hide beneath a very strung wall 
mad.- of stone or cement, and to throw themselves 
on the ground and to cover the hack of their heads, 
ami the body if possible, with cloth. In this way it 
may be possible to escape annihilation and death 
through ra.liation. It is very important that the 
immediate survivors are given non-ra«lioactive food 
.and drink, and that they be removed immediately 
from the radioactive district. 

It is impossible, however, to erect walls an.l con- 
crete ceilings of adequate thickness to cover an 
entire city. Where WOttld the material and the means 
come from ? How would a population find time even 
to run to safety in such bunkers? 

In an atomic war there would be neither con- 
queror nor vanquished. During such a bombardment 
both sides would suffer the same fate. A continuous 
destruction would take place and no armistice or 
peace proposals could bring it to an end. 

When people deal with atomic weapons, it is 
not a matter of superior arms which will decide the 
issue between them, but only: "Now we »"»nt to 
commit suicide together, destroying each other 
mutually . . ." 



GREEKS LOOK TOWARD FUTURE 

To the Editor: 

In answer to the questions put forth in the September 19th edi- 
torial on fraternities: 

1. As an example of whether or not we Greeks do care about the 
future of fraternities and sororities I would like to inform you about 
the Lesson of the Bridge Builder which, incidentally, all the pledges 
of Tau Epsilon Phi are required to learn. 

The story is about an old man who while traveling a lonely high- 
way came to a vast and deep chasm. The man crossed the chasm and 
stream, and when safe on the other side built a bridge to span the 
tide. A fellow pilgrim told him that he was wasting his strength be- 
cause he would probably never again pass the same way. 
The builder lifted his old grey head — 

"Good friend, in the path I have come," he said, 
"There followeth after me today, 
A youth whose feet must pass this way; 
This chasm which has been na ght to me 
To that fair haired youth may a pitfall be; 
He, too. must cross in the twilight dim — 
Good friend, I am building this bridge for him." 
Although this is a part of Tau Epsilon Phi, most Greeks will agree 
that this is also a part of them. 

2. All fraternity men realize the seriousness of the approaching 
crisis as has been shown by the accomplishments of the Panhellenic- 
I.F.C. workshop which was held before classes started. Most impor- 
tant, something IS being done about the "rapidly approaching crisis." 

3. In his address to the fraternity and sorority presidents, Presi- 
dent Mather said that whenever a chapter completes its plans for a 
new house and has the necessary financial backing it may begin build- 
ing. There has been money appropriated by the State Legislature for 
the construction of sewerage and roads. The I.F.C. is now making 
plans for the addition of new chapters on this campus, but this takes 
time ami patience. 

Therefore. Mr. T.M., put your mind at ease, as everything pos- 
sible is being done to improve, rebuild, and strengthen our Greek 
organizations. 

Robert Myers 
Vice-President of the I.F.C.

CAMPUS QUEENS 

Second of a series 

Controversy has arisen over the selection of the 
finalists in this year's Homecoming Queen Contest. 
It surprises me that this controversy has taken this 
long in coming to the fore. 

Since I have been on campus the selection of 
queens in our various beauty pageants has been car- 
ried on in rather mysterious and obscure manners. 
The vast majority of students do not know how to 
nominate their desirables. Nor are they aided great- 
ly in the achievement of this task. Suddenly one 
day, to their surprise, a picture of five finalists ap- 
pears in the C<>lU<iinn. Picked by whom and under 
what grounds is a matter left to general specula- 
tion. Then on the day somehow a finalist is deter- 
mined and crowned. 

The lack of organization in these contests, which 
assuredly are important due to their internal mean- 
ing as well as the publicity they lend to the OUTER 
WORLD, is reflected hy the small participation in 
this year's Homecoming Queen selection. 

I should like to suggest a few points as at least 
possible of leading to the establishment of an or- 
ganized, appealing, cooperative, and fair system of 
selecting queens: 

1. Limit the eligible contestants to members of 
the Junior and Senior classes. 

2. Open the selection of the five finalists to con- 
trolled (if possible) voting by the whole campus. 

3. Selection of the queen to be determined by s 
committee representing officially the contest con- 
cerned. 

4. Any girl selected as queen in one contest to 
be immediately ineligible to be queen in any other 
content that year. 

If these points are not receptive of the campus 
consensus, I hope they might at least lead to posi- 
tive action towards adding dignity to the selection 

of our Campus Queens.

Deei Miss "C i f ed", 

Unless roe go home and see \otir boyfriend almost every week- 
»nd or have him come up here to see >ou. you are ffOiBg to miss an 
awful lot of the social life of your freshman year. Ask almost any 
uppeiclass girl and she will tell you that your freshman year is the 
best time to meet boys. Try to make some kind of agreement with 
rear boyfriend which will give you both a chance to look around be- 
fore you settle down. 

Aunt Ruthie 

P.S. Some of the Readers might have some ideas on this. 

Dear Ruthie, 

I am a freshman girl going out with a fraternity man. He says 
he is vary fond of me but every time I see him down at the Hatch, he 

is sitting with > bunch of girls. 

"Suspicious" 

Dear Miss "Suspicious", 

I would not worry about it. Also, there is no reason why you 
couldn't be sitting down there, the next time he comes by, with a 

bunch of boys. 

Aunt Ruthie 

Dear Ruthie, 

I have been dying to date this cute freshman chick since the be- 
ginning of school but she says that I ask her too late and by that time 
she alr.-ady has B date. I ask her a week ahead usually, isn't that 

enough ? 

"Disappointed - ' 

Dear Mr. "Disappointed," 

If the girl seems to like you there is no reason why you should 
ask for a date more than a week ahead of time. Or wait till she gets 

to be a sophomore. 

Aunt Ruthie 



SOME OF MY FRIENDS 



by R.P.G. 

One of my friends and I were 
chatting, and having coffee in the 
Hatch when he started to grind 
his axe on me. 

He asked DM foi my opinion on 
the mess that used to be our Uni- 
versity pond, (he wanted to give 
his opinion, naturally). I went 
along with his plans and said 
that I had no opinion, but wanted 
to hear his. 

Quite happy now, he said that 
last year the pond looked alright 
to him, and was supporting 
plenty of life. My friend happens 



to like plants and animals, and 
he went on to say that life in any 
form is important; and destroy- 
ing life's environment, its home, 
is wrong! I said that the pond is 
going to be restored, but he 
claimed that the pond is de- 
stroyed forever, and that the 
thing outside will be nothing but 
a new hole full of water, not a 
living pond like the one which 
was destroyed. 

This friend of mine talks quite 
a bit, and he went on explaining 
while I agreed until I had to 
leave for class.

THIS IS FREEDOM OF THE PRESS WEEK 



And They Believe... 

Compiled hv MARSHALL WHITHKD 



Dean t .thill, commenting on 
the question, "Should there be 
;i free student press?", com- 
mented, "1 don't think that we 
should have any control over 
what noes into the Collegian, 
Qn the other hand, I don't think 
thai we should he held respon- 
sible for what goes into the 
paper, either."' 

!>. it i L pf Won en Curtis a 
ocated . student press, 

,. . "Certainly 1 believe in 
the press, and I take 
great pride in the present policy 
of the university which does not 
require that Collegian copy be 
read by a faculty advisor before 
it is sent to the printer. "But 
freedom must always be mea- 
sured in terms of responsi- 
bility," she commented. 

Assistant to the Dean of Men 
William Burkhardt added "The 
word 'Freedom' in the phrase 
'Freedom of the Press' brings to 
my mind the word 'Privilege' 
and not license. Certainly, the 
press in the United States is a 
major source for shaping the 
minds and actions of the people 
in this democratic society. But 
let those who have the respon- 
sibility of this privilege bear in 
mind that facts written in good 
taste and in proper style should 
be the foremost guide in their 
endeavor." 

l'rof. Frank Prentice Rand, 
former head of the UMass 
English Department, stated that 
there is no such thing as 
absolute freedom of any kind. 
"The press should be free as 
long as it is responsible, con- 
siderate, and in accord with the 
Spirit of the community which it 
serves," he stated. 

Professor Arthur Musgrave, 
in charge of the journalism pro- 
gram, stressed that "The most 
important things about journa- 
lism that can be learned from 
college newspaper work require 
a free student press." 



Mather Comments 
Favorably 

President Mather: "I regard 

the policy and operation of a 

free student press to be an es- 
sential contribution to the w! 
spirit of communication and in- 
quiry ' t ■ university campus. I 
further consider a free press to 
be Just what we have in the 
Collegian — namely an uncen- 
sored, student-directed, student- 
sponsored, student-paid-for press. 

The only responsibility of a 
faculty adviser or consultant to 
such a press is to give advice 
on financial management and 
general publication policy with- 
out specifically interfering with 
matters that the student pub- 
lishing group wish to review 
through the paper. As far as I 
know the administration of this 
I'niversity has never interfered 
with the freedom of ;he press 
represented by the student news- 
paper, and this administration 
intends to continue this policy. 

The purpose of a school paper 
is not to provide a means of 
praising or agreeing with the 
administration, the faculty, the 
alumni, or anyone else. If any of 
these groups deserve either 
praise or criticism, they will 
gain recognition in the normal 
course of events even if such 
recognition takes a long time. 

If you really believe in free- 
dom of the press, then you 
should have faith enough to 
believe that irresponsibility will 
eventually be recognized in a 
democracy as irresponsibility. 
And a free press that is respon- 
sible will, in my opinion, pre- 
dominate in the long run. 



Lally On Religion 

by KEVIN DONOVAN '60 

Rt. Rev. Monsignor Francis J. 
Lally, editor of the Boston Arch- 
diocesan newspaper, the I'il"t, 
held the attention of a capacity 
audience of students in the dining 
Commons last night with a talk 
on the balance between religion 
and secularism in today's soci- 
ety. 

The occasion marked the key- 
note m. -.ting of 1958-59 New- 
man Club pmgram. 

Refuting the argument that 
religion deals with spiritual 
intangihle-^ only, Monsignor 
Lally stressed the fundamental 
Christian beUaf in the practical 
action of men with the mundane 
with the religious ideals of the 
spirit. 

The individual alone is res- 
ponsible for himself, yet in a 
larger sense, he is a small part 
of the whole, which is society, 
concluded Monsignor Lally. 

Mr. Lally is the first of many 
distinguished speakers slated for 
Mns season. Father Donehy, a 
JeeUft priest, from the College

US POSTAGE 



Journalism Stamp — This is a 
drawing of the journalism and 
freedom of the press stamp which 
the Poet Office Depart merit an- 
nounced August 9, 1958. It was 
issued September 22, 1958. 



Notables Vary 
In Opinion 

"There will always be a need 
for a mature and free student 
press. The student newspaper 
should always be a mirror for its 
student's opinions. A censored 
press does ant guarantee its stu- 
dents the right to publish their 
opinion." 

— Joel Wolfson, Editor-in-Chief 



"A free press in any situation 
is much to be desired, certainly 
the college press, which has done 
so much throughout history to 
further the cause of all mankind. 
Freedom of the press is a part of 
the American heritage, recorded 
and guaranteed by our Constitu- 
tion. The college press has al- 
ways carried on in the tradition 
established by our forefathers: it 
should continue to do so in the 
future." 

—Dave Wilson '59, 
Pres. pro tern of 
Student Senate 



"Our campus newspaper is not 
a member of the free press, it is 
a tax supported monopoly." 

— Richard Keogh, Ex-Senator 



"A- student newspaper should 
be a free and responsible press. 
By freedom, I mean uncensored; 
and by responsibility, I mean the 
editors are accountable for the 
contents according to the dictates 
of their consciences."

Free Press Means 
Responsibility 

by DAN 11 KM FN WAY '61 

toeisjnsaenl Kditor 

Practically no one will deny 
that the student press should be 
free: for that would be denying 
that a traditional "American 
heritage" is valid. 

The real question is what is 
a free student newspaper, for if 
we are to advocate the applica- 
tion of a principle, we must de- 
fine precisely what the principle 
is and how it functions. 

Freedom, in any respect, is in- 
separahle from responsibility. 
The privilege of acting in an 
intelligent, objective manner 
with the welfare of the society 
in mind is the essence of free- 
dom. Abuse of this privilege will 
clearly result in anarchy. 

The student newspaper is the 
representative of the student 
body, operated through student 
efforts and subsidized by student 
funds. Therefore, the. freedom of 
the student press lies in its res- 
ponsibility to present other fac- 
tions with the student viewpoint 
and to furnish the students with 
an accurate and reliable source 
of facts from which they can 
construct new viewpoints with- 
out danger of ignorant prejudice. 

The only ethical manner by 
u'Jiieli a student MWajNSJMf can 

maintain its freedom is to accept 
its responsibility to print that 
news u-hieh is of interest and 
importance to the students with- 
out discrimination or distortion 
of the truth, and to take any 
stand which, is plainly the cause 
of the campus. This is freedom 
of the student press. 



Ageless Views 

"The liberty <>f the pre.s is 
essentia! to the security of free- 
dom in a state; it OOghi not, 
therefore, to bo restrained in 

this Commonwealth. The right 

of free s p ee c h shall not be 

abridged." 

Article 16 in Massachusctt* 
Constitution 

"A new-writer is a man with- 
out virtue, who writes lies at 

borne for his own profit. To theae 
compositions is required neither 
genius nor knowledge, neither 
industry nor apringhtliness; but 
Contempt Of shame and indif- 
ferenre to truth are absolutely 
necessary." 

Journalist Samuel Johnson, 
The Idler, 1758 





Out Of The Mike 

by JIM CONWAY '59 

Yesterday afternoon I met a 
frosh who thought that WMILA 
was a commercial radio station 
run by a professional staff. Nat- 
urally, I was very flattened by 
the implications o* his remark, 
as anyone at the station would 
be. Somehow at the same time I 
was appalled and somewhat sur- 
prised by his lack of information. 

"This is the student operated 
voice of the University of Massa- 
chusetts, yi.l on your FM dial. 
Stay tuned for . . .". This is 
the identification which is givem 
every half hour over WMUA. 
In the words of the identification 
appear the phrase "student oper- 
ated voice". This is what I ex- 
plained to that freshman. 

At the present time there are 
immy openings at the station. 
Why don't you come down and 
talk to us at the station, located 
in the basement of the Engineer- 
ing Building? Anytime after 
1:00 p.m. there will be someone 
in the station who will bo glad 
to talk to you. 

Also, for frank and often sur- 
prising views and comments on 
campus affairs hear "Meet the 
I'-esident" every Monday at 
6:45 p.m. This is the show where 
the president, J. Paul Mather 
answers the questions of tho 
student body.

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLECI W WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 21. 1958 



Frosh Gridders 
Show Promise 



bv AL BERMAN 



Alter keenly evaluating the 

Freshman football team during 
four practices. Coach Noel Ree- 
benacher considers the squad 
very promising. 

Fifty -one men are uniformed 
as of now, but the coach exjx 
that, because of academic and 
other reasons, there will be 
about forty or forty-five men 
still playing at season'i end. 

Line Averages 200 
The average weight of the 
line is 200 jniunds, compared to 
215 last year. The coach is 
spending a lot of time <>n a new 
pass protection drill, wherein 
the action begins with all men 
lying on the ground. This is in- 
tended to teach the men to re- 
cover quickly when they are hit. 
As a result, the passer has more 
time to complete the play. 

According to coach Reebe- 
nacher, line coach John Tero, and 
end coach Win MacDonald, all 
five of the quarterbacks appear 
very capable. They are: Francis 
F&'.bo, Watertown; Lenny La- 
Bella, Everett; Bill Perkins, 
Uxbridge; Ken Rainey, Spring- 
field Tech; and Pete Sullivan, 
Worcester Academy. 

There are three hustling half- 
backs who look good; John 
Bamberry, Dedham; speedy Dom 
Fermano, Maiden; and Joe Lour, 
Reading. Braintree's Dick Adley 
has shown well at fullback. 

The coaches agree that at the 
present time the best line looks 
like; at center, strong Jim Frary, 
SwatnpM-Mtt; John Kosaka, Pitts- 
fiebl, and Dk-k Egex, Holyoke, at 
guard; tackle* Mike O'Brien, 
Pittsfield, and Frank Parsons, 
Bvnunpacot&i and, at the ends, 
Ed 1 rush, Springfield Tech, 
and Joe Mahoney. 

Team Shows Depth 

Naturally, these are just first 
observations and should not be 
considered as definite in any way. 
There is still plenty of competi-

Other eontendera on the line 
an .enters Frank Borselli, 
Keith; Tom Pierce, St. John's

and Carmen Scarpa, Last Boston. 
At the guards are: Kicky De#-

man, Brookline; Mike Howayeck, 
(a.-e-S .vansea; John Kilcoyne, 
Watertown; Bob Mastrodomeni-

St. Mary'-. 

P\>r more opposition at tackle, 
there are: Jerry Kane, Roxbury 
Memorial; Henry Makie, Wor- 
cester; George Marshall, Oliver 
Ames; Dave Sohles, Pittsfield; 
and Mark Theran, Brookline. 
Other ends are: Ken Ekburg, 
Worcester North; Karl Emery, 
Melrose; Dave Harrington, Hol- 
yoke; Ken Judge, Lawrence 
Catholic; Gerry Pudolsky, Whit- 
man; Peter Staffon, Arlington; 
and Mark Whitney, Athol. 

Many All -Scholastics 

Several of tr aspirants were 
members of all-scholastic 
but that fact plays no pari in 
the final selections. As Coach 
Reebenacher explains, "Back- 
ground isn't important. We en- 
courage any boy to come out for 
the team. Ability will win (he 
position. There is no favoritism."

The first scrimmage will be 
on Friday, Sept. 26th in pre- 
dion for the lid-lifter "ii 
October 17th here against

Grid Film 

One-hundred and seventy-five 
Umies were on hand last night 
in the Commonwealth Room when 
a movie of the UMass-Maine 
football game was shown. 

Head Coach Charlie O'Rourke 
narrated the film. O'Rourke was 

very pleased with the turnout, 
considering that there was no 
advance publicity announcing the 
film. 

The UMass football mentor 
stated that the film of each Red- 
men game, home or away, will 
be shown the Tuesday after the 
contest. O'Rourke said that he 
hoped a large enough crowd will 
be on hand next week so that the 
movie can be shown in the main 
ballroom. "I think the films can 
help both the spirit of the school 
and the team," he added. 

The movies are sponsored by 
the School Athletic Council and 
the Games and Tournament Com- 
mittee of the Student Union 
planning board.

Student Government Hits Snag 



Judging from the number of 
nomination papers taken out at 
5 p.m. yesterday for the Senate 
elections next Wednesday, the 
Freshman class may well be 
without representation in the 
Student Senate. 

In six out of seven women's 
dorms, not one freshman girl 
had drawn the necessary papers. 
The seventh, Abbey's only nomi- 
nee to date is a freshman girl. 

The men are doing better, but 
face stiff opposition from upper- 
classmen in all dorms. 

Some attribute the poor show- 
ing of the girls to lack of in- 
formation. Said one girl, "they 
(frosh women) don't know what 
goes on — they're not familiar 
enough with the campus — they're 
just getting integrated them- 
selves." 

Others note the newly inte- 
grated women's dorms as a 
cause, because upperclass wo- 
men "run everything," and will 
provide too much competition for 
the freshmen. 

Dean of Women Helen Curtis 
remarked, however, "free elec- 
tions are to be held in every 
dorm, let's see how it works 
out." 



Since freshmen men have been 
living in at least partially inte- 
grated dorms, comment was 
solicited from Assistant Dean of 
Men and Faculty Resident in 
Van Meter, William Burkhardt. 

He stated, "as Faculty Resi- 
dent of Van Meter, which is ap- 
proximately 8 5 freshmen, I 
could not possibly make a cor- 
relation as to a negative affect 
of integrated dorms upon fresh- 
men. 

"I might point out that all of 
the dorm officers elected last 
week in Van Meter were fresh- 
men. Therefore, I feel that 
freshmen are obviously not at a 
disadvantage in Van Meter be- 
cause, as stated above, they are 
in the majority." 

It is possible, of course, that 
some of our latest female arri- 
vals will decide to give the 
veteran residents a fight, and 
will take out nomination papers 
Monday. 

Election Committee Chairman 
Hal Lane emphasized the fact 
that "papers may be returned 
any time up until 4. p.m. Mon- 
day." There is time for fresh- 
men from the women's dorms to 
get some representation for 
their class. 



Rev. Kershaw Quiz Show Star, 
To Speak On Jazz To .CA 



Rev. Alvin L. Kershaw, a 
$32,000 winner in the Jazz Cate- 
gory on "The $64,000 Question," 
wil' speak at the first CA. meet- 
ing on Tuesday, Sept. 30, in the 
Dining Commons. His topic will 
be "A Noel to the Lore Ranger." 

Kershaw is greatly interested 
in the relationship between re- 
ligious faith and the cultural ex- 
pressions of it in the arts, includ- 
ing jazz. 

He has presented a number of 
jazz programs on television a*d 
radio and has written a number 
of articles cm the subject. 

As a lecturer and faculty semi- 
nar leader in "Religion and Con- 
temporary Arts," Mr. Kershaw 
visits many campuses across the 
country. 




REV. ALVIN KERSHAW 



by RICHARD MacLEOD 
Senate Reporter 

After forty-five minutes of de- 
bate, the Student Senate last 
Wednesday night accepted the 
motion of Senator Hal Lane '60, 
to refer the controversial guar- 
anteed Concert Association bud- 
get motion to the Finance Com- 
mittee for further study. 

This motion would guarantee 
that the Senate would give a 
minimum of eight percent of 
last year's total concert fees to 
be used for concert fees this 
year. 

Discussion traveled from con- 
sideration of a legal snag, which 
Senator Art Shaw '60 believed 
would result in tying up the 
entire $9,000 in the Student 
Activities Stabilization fund, to 
a suggestion that "a bomb could 
drop on the campus" causing the 
Concert Association to dissolve, 
and leaving the Senate com- 
mitted to a $9,600 guarantee to 
a non-existent organization. 

Senator James Hirtle '59, sug- 
gested that the Concert series 
might be less expensive if L'M 
were to take "spare dates" late 
in the Spring. 

Discussion centered upon the 
lengthy introduction of the mo- 
tion by its sponsor Senator 
Robert Zelis '60, and the techni- 
cal points brought up by Senator 
Shaw regardjng the Stabiliza- 
tion fund. 

Because of the latter an 
amendment was passed lowering 
the proposed guarantee from 80 
percent to 50 percent. However, 
the legislators relieved them- 
selves of the whole burden 
momentarily by later accepting 
Senator Lane's assertion that 
"We are not qualified to arbi- 
trarily set a figure of 80 percent 
or 50 percent . . . this requires 
further study," and surrendered 
the matter to the Finance Com- 
mittee for a one week study. 

A separate motion by Senator 
Kevin Donavan '61 to endorse 
the painting of a crosswalk on 
Route 116 at the diagonal cross- 
ing from Clark Hall toward the 
S.U. was earlier referred to the 
Building and (irounds Committee. 



Departments Justify Book Changes 



In answer to the accusation 
that some book changes are un- 
necessary, Department heads 
were unanimous in declaring that 
much time and energy went into 
any decision to change a text. 

"Book changes are made for 
the benefit of the student, not on 
the whimsy of any one person," 
said Dr. Robert Livingston, head 
of the Botany Department. He 
added that his Department took 
"particular pains to avoid un- 
necessary changes which might 
be costly to the student." 

The head of the Zoology De- 
partment, G. L. Woodside said 
that his Department adopted a 
new text because "it is the best 
book in its field — much better 
than the old text." 

Theodore C. Caldwell, head of 
the History Department agreed 



that much time and effort is 
■pest before a text is adopted. In 
his own department, a committee 
"carefully studies new texts be- 
fore a decision is made." 

John D. Trimmer of the 
Physics department said that 
the change of the Physics 25 
text was made necessary by this 
year's heavy teaching load. He 
regretted the change, but insisted 
that it was "completely neces- 
sary." Mr. Trimmer added that 
he was "very aware of the cost 
to the students." 

The head of the Department 
of Psychology Claude C. Neet, 
said that changes of texts in his 
Department are due to the fact 
that "The effect of a new text 
cannot be determined until it is 
used by the students. If the effect 
is contrary to that desired, that 



text must be replaced the fol- 
lowing year." 

Rottert D. Lane of the English 
department was "pleased" that 
his department was able to cut 
down text ex |ienses but added 
that this situation is possible be- 
cause "good literature doesn't 
change." 

The head of the Chemistry de- 
partment, Walter S. Ritchie, 
said that "all changes are made 
in the interests of the student." 

ITiilip L. Gamble, head of the 
Economics department said that 
the change of text for Economics 
25 was caused by the fact that 
"the old text, which had l>een 
used for five year-, needed re- 
vising badly. Economics is a 
modern subject and students 
should have modern, up-to-date 
Textbooks."

Rally 'round the bonfire boys. 
The first football rally of the 
year will be held tonight on the 
south side of the S.U. 

Highlights of the evening will 
include a spsech by Provost 
McCune, the first bonfire ever to 
be held in the specially built pit, 
followed by a rally dance, the 
first in a series sponsored by 
Adelphia. 

A parade w ; ll form behind 
Butterfield Dorm at 6:30 and 
slowly wind through campus to

500 Hear 
Quartet 

by PAUL BUTLER '61 
Fine Arts Critic 

The Claremont Quartet pre- 
sented chamber music to an un- 
anticipated crowd of nearly five 
hundred, some of whom arrived 
tardily and noisily. 

The program included works 
by Beethoven, Schubert, and a 
contemporary Russian composer, 
Shostakovich. * 

While Beethoven and Schubert 
were handled excellently, it was 
Shostakovich's Quartet Number 
.">, Opus '>'J. that aroused both mu- 
sicians and audienc«' to full ap- 
preciation. This relatively un- 
known work was performed for 
the first time in the United 
States by this Quartet. 

Inst violinist, Marc Cottlieb 
gave full vent to Im>Ui his musical 

technology and she intangible 

abilities of t\ greal musician. 

Backed by Vladimir Weisman, 
second violin; William Schoen, 
viola; ami Irving Klein, cello, he 
virtually soared through this 
ranging score. 

Immediately preceding this se- 
lection (iottlieb gave a short dis- 
course in which his self -nppi. 
ated good humor did much to en- 
hance the performer audience in- 
timacy, an important aspect of 
this form of music. 

This intimacy is a product of 
the smallness of the group which 
somewhat restricts audience size. 

Again because of the lack of 
extonahri instrumentation, both 
composer and musician are sore- 
ly tested. 

Indeed extremes of talent are 

reejuired of i«»t h parties. The 

composers of thia concert are all 
• d ones ami the Claremont 
Quartet has proven itself equal 
to expressing these greats.

THK MASSACHl'SETTS COLI.KGIAN. FRIDAY. SKPTKMBER 2«. 1958 



To the Editor: 

As an undergraduate, I was a very active student 
and very loyal to the University. As an alumnus, 
I am just as loyal, and very much interested in what 
the student body does and thinks. I am sure there 
are many other Alumni who are also as interested 
as I. I am sure that they have found as I have, that 
by reaouing ths Collegian, one can get an excellent 
idea on what is happening on Campus. 

I wa.s very much surprised when on Monday 
nioriiLng, September 22, I received the September 
15th edition of the Collegian, and on Tuesday, the 
September 17th and* 19th editions. I would have 
received them earlier, but the Collegian did not have 
my new address and the papers had to be forwarded 
to my new address. 

I am very much pleased to see how efficient the 
Collegian staff is working. To be so prompt upon 
returning from its summer vacation and getting the 
paper out on time and especially to the mail sub- 
scribers, calls for cooperation and teamwork. 

Congratulations for a job well done are tended to 
the entire Collegian staff! 

I am looking forward to nine months of good 

reading.

Omission 

To the Editor: 

It struck me as an oversight that the introduc- 
tions inclusive within the 1958 annual Woman's 
Honors Convocation omitted those women students 
in responsible positions on the Collegian. Are not 
those who serve to provoke and to inform a body of 
young men and women engaged in the process of 
increasing and sharpening their specific and overall 
awareness deserving of recognition ami support ?

Advice And Gripes 

To Common's Eaters: 

Monday's Collegian contained a picture which 
illustrates the problem a student encounters to get 
a meal at the Commons lately. That the Commons 
is at fault, thers is no doubt. When food runs out, 
a wait for more to be prepared ensues. There is no 
need of this. By now the chefs ought to know how 
many to plan for. Slow serving is another source 
of aggravation. Waiting for dessert or coffee cer- 
tainly does not help any. Student gripes are there- 
fore legitimate. I'm sure the Commons' staff is 
ready to accept their guilt. 

On the other hand, consider what the Commons 
must contend, with. It depends largely on student 
help. Unfortunately, students frequently overlook the 
responsibility that falls on them when they sign up 
for jobs. This is due to the fact that people don't 
show up. Everyone is entitled to some absences but it 
seems to me that if students sign up to %vork for 
specific meals, they ought to be there. 

Students who eat there have their part to play, 
too. Sometimes they move through the line so slow- 
ly it is agony tc watch them. Whether to choose 
white or dark bread seems to be a major decision 
for some. Many stop to ask about the, "What's 
this?" or "What's that?". Stopping to get a ticket 
out isn't exactly conducive to speediness either. 

If students would only stop to realize there are 
a lot more waiting behind them. As one who is on 
the other side of the fence (I work there), may I 
offer a few suggestions? Just inside the door, there 
is a menu provided for your convenience. Try to 
read it and make your decision before you reach the 
stt-am table. Please don't hold long conversations with 
the employees. It slows the line and those on their 
jobs. Save your talking to those with whom you're 
going to eat until you get to the table. Try to have 
your tickets out before you get to the cashier. 

There are faults to be found on both sides. More 
students than SVSg are eating at the Commons. It's 
up to those who work there M well as those who 
oat tluix to show a little consideration and cooper- 
ation. 1,. t's have a little more; then maybe we can 
dispense with a few gripes.

The Campus Beat 



by ALAN Ll'PO 

This page is undoubtedly the 
most uncontroversial page in the 
history of college newspapers. 
We don't create controversy; we 
don't settle controversy; we don't 
even stimulate controversy. Just 
once, I'd like to hit the big time 
and expose someone. Just once, 
I should like to write about a 
hoax, but I don't know of any 
hoaxes. 

Somewhere on this extensive 
campus there must be some 
hidden story, some controversial 
-ubject which will make all the 
campus take note of this column. 
But in the meantime . . . 

Kappa Alpha Theta invites the 
campus to Open House follow- 
ing the B.U. game tomorrow. 
Beautiful women and beautiful 
food from 3:30 to 6 p.m. 

All EE's and interested physi- 
cists are invited to the first 
meeting of the American Insti- 
tute of Electrical Engineers 
Institute of Radio Engineers 
on Tuesday, September 30, 7:30 
p.m. in E.B. 120. The meeting 
will include a film, refreshments, 
plans for a membership drive, 
forming of committees, and door 
prizes. 

Provost Shannon McCune will 
be the featured speaker at the 
first Hillel Bagel and Lox 
Breakfast of the sesson on Sun- 
day, September 28, at 10. a.m. 
All are welcome. The donation 
is 35 cents. 

Election of officers will take 
place at the Spanish Club meet> I 

}ng> Tuesday, September 30, at 
7:30 p.m. in Leach Lounge. Re- 
freshments will be served. 

Movies of the B.U. game with 
a commentary by a member of 
the Physical Education Dept. 
will be shown this Tuesday at 
7 p.m. in the SU Commonwealth 
Room. No admission charge to 
this event, sponsored by the SU 
Games and Tournaments Com-

"Mr. Hulot's Holiday," an 
English comedy, will be shown 
tomorrow at 8 p.m. in the SU 
ballroom. It is sponsored by the 
SI* Movies Committee. Admis- 
sion is 25 cents. 

I guess that those events 
should keep the campus busy 
for a few days. Maybe I'll get 
time to look for some kind of 
scandal. If, in the interim, any 
of you happen upon a hoax, 
please send it in with one box- 
top from anything to the Col- 
legian Publicity Editor. 

They're coming to take me 
away now. 



Women's Fashions 

by SHEIIji MeLAlGHLIN 

Costume conformity on campus 
is taking a turn downward this 
Fall. Manhattan designers may 
be the reason for the co-eds' va- 
riety of dress, as an entirely new 
series of college fashions has 
been created. 

The crew-necked sweater is 
being replaced by an old yet new 
style, the cardigan. The latest 
from New York tells us that the 
cardigan in bulky knits of Mo- 
hair, Orion, and fur blends, 
fashioned after the "old man's" 
sweater is the trend for 1958; 
others have collars and pockets. 
These new fashions add variety 
to a girl's wardrobe and elimi- 
nate the stereotyped quality of 
the crew-neck. 

The latest replacement for 
Bermuda shorts should please the 
men on campus. The "Skort," a 
pleated skirt which reveals the 
knees to their best advantage is 
arriving on the scene accompa- 
nied by long colored stockings 
known as leotites or danskins. 

These new arrivals are the 
reason for the non-comformity 
in dress this fall.

As more and more upperclass- 
men arrived at Iiorm 15 at the 
outset of the school y#ar, the 
lines which were forming outside 
the doors of the few freshmen in- 
habitants became longer and 
longer. All wera eager to get 
their first look at the 1958 edi- 
tion of the mugbook. Information 
was taken down at a furious 
pace, and one by one the hunters 
left the rooms and headed for 
that number one necessity, the 
telephone. 

But here they met defeat. New 
Dorm may have the newest and 
most modern rooms and facilities 
but it does not have telephones. 
Word had it that the construc- 
tion now going on outside of 
New 1'orm is not state work, but 
that three electrical engineers 
ai-e laying underground wires to 
every woman's dormitory and 
sorority house on campus. 

The final election of officers in 
Van Meter took place at a meet- 
ing held Thursday, Sept. 18. 
Spirit van high in the all-out 
campaign, which took place after 
the primaries, complete with 
signs, slogans, and hand shaking. 




Van Meter lists the following 
slate of officers. 

President : Robert Chisholm ; 
Vice-President: A. Webster Ol- 
son; Secretary-Treasurer: Den- 
nis Ryan; Social Chairman: 
Robert Smith. 

Van Meter will hold a dance 
on October 4, the theme of which 
will be "Jamaica Holiday."

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN. FRIDAY. SEPTEMBER 26. 1958 



TERRIERS TO INVADE UMASS 



B. U. Makes First Visit 
In Sixty-Six Years 



KICKOFF DUE AT 1:30 

by .DICK BRESCIA SI 
One of the biggest crowds in years is expected to jam Alumni 
Field tomorrow afternoon when UMass tangles with Boston Univer- 
sity in the first home football game of the '958 season. The opening 
kickoff is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. 

The Terriers are making their first invasion of Western Mass. 
since 1892. Boasting a squad of 22 lettermen plus depth in ew im- 
position, BU is favored to hand the Redmen their second defeat of 
the year. 

Bu's passing attack is led by 
diminutive quarterback Emo Di- 
Nitto, who bullseyed nine out of 
10 pass attempts, good for three 
•core*, in a scrimmage against 
Dartmouth last Saturday. The 
sharp-shooting DiN'itto makes up 
for his height deficiency with 
nifty faking and some clever 
signal calling. 

DiNitto's favorite target will 
be end Jim Kenney, co-captain of 
the Terriers. He is a top pass 
catcher and a standout defensive 
lineman. The BU halfbacks 'are 
also accomplished pass receivers 
due to the use of the winged-T 
and slot-back offense. 

Tommy Caito, a junior guard 

is the sparkplug of the Terriers* 

forward wall. Head coach Steve 

Sinko said that he hasn't "seen 

a guard like him for 20 years." 

Jim DiBona, a 260 pound junior 

tackle, will bolster the line and 

give BU an average of 10 pounds 

per man over the Redmen. 
Has Tough Schedule 
This is Sinko's second season 

as head coach of the Terriers. He 

succeeded Aldo (Buff) Donelli 

last year and produced a 5-3 rec- 
ord, he will have a difficult time 

improving that mark because BU 

has embarked on its most ambi- 
tious schedule in years, meeting 

such top elevens as Navy, West 

Virginia, Penn State, Holy Cross 

and Boston College. 

Sinko's starting backfield will 

be minus its two top stars of last 

season. 

Co-captain John Ma jo suffered 

a broken ankle earlier this month- 



and is definitely out of the line- 
up. His running mate, Paul Can- 
cro, also has a leg injury, but he 
may sec limited action. 

Drubbed Dartmouth 

The Terriers manhandled 
Dartmouth seven touchdowns to 
one in last week's serinv.nage, 
even though the Big Green is 
rated as one of the top teams in 
the Ivy League. 

UMass coach Charlie O'Rourke 
worked his warriors hard this 
week, with special emphasis on 
pass defense. Unlike the past 
two years when the Redmen were 
vastly outmanned on the depth 
chart, tomorrow the Terriers will 
have a manpower advantage in 
only two slots, center and quar- 
terback. 

O'Rourke will start three soph- 
omores against BU. Right end 
Dave Swepson, tackle Dick 
Thornton, and halfback Tom Del- 
nickas will make their debuts as 
UMass starters. 

Varrichione Hurt 

The Redmen will be minus line- 
man Ben Fernandez, who is out 
with a rib injury. Guard Lou 
Varrichione, a standout in the 
Maine game, is a doubtful start- 
er. Lou is the victim of a bruised 
hip obtained at Orono. Otherwise, 
the Redmen are in good physical 
condition. 

The injuries to BU's top backs 
plus some sharp passing by Bill 
Maxwell and the tank-like charg- 
es of Buzz Richardson could lead 
the way to a tasty upset victory. 




Two Sophs Start 

Dave Swepson, left, 185 lb. end 
from Boston Latin, and Tom 
I'elnickas, 175 lb. halfback from 
Westfield High, flank coach 
Charlie O'Rourke after being 
moved up to starting berths for 
the j£ame against Boston Univer- 
sity here tomorrow. 

Coach O'Rourke promoted the 
two sophomores as a result of 
their outstanding performances 
against Maine last week. 



DAVE SWEPSON 



Sidelights 

by DENNIS CROWLEY 

Coach Charlie O'Rourke was 
highly optimistic about tomor- 
row's game with the B.U. 
Terriers. One reason is that the 
taut! is better prepared for this 
year's contest both physically 
and depth-wise. "The team is 
mentally ready," said O'Rourke. 
"All we need now is a few lucky 
bounces for a change." 

A new trophy will be held up 
for one of the BU or UMass 
players this weekend. The Ter- 
rier Club of America has estab- 
lished a Most Valuable Player 
Award to go to the top player 
in the annual clash. 

Tomorrow night'* rally should 
be a beauty. The whole Redmen 
team will be there and this is a 
good time to show them that 
we're backing them KKKr. You 
can't expect them to give their 
best on the field if they feel that 
no one cares whether they win 
or lose. This is the best Umie 
team I've seen in four years, in- 
cluding the one that beat Har- 
vard, and we should get behind 
the Redmen.

Freshmen Men Learn Functions Of Student Government 



Collegian Hits Newstands... 



by SUSAN HEARTY 
Guest Reporter 

Another step in the 88-year 
growth of the campus newspaper 
has been made with the sale of 
the Collegian at A. J. Hastings 
in Amherst. 

The newspaper went on sale 
in the local newsdealer's store 
last Friday and will be sold there 
regularly at five cents a copy. 

On October 26, 1C70 the first 
edition appeared as a four col- 
umn department of the local 
weekly newspaper, the Amherst 
Record. Entitled the Massachu- 
setts Agricultural College De- 
partment, the publication was 
discontinued in 1871. 

Resumed in 1890, the news- 
paper was dubbed Aggie Life. 

The state college of Massachu- 
setts was growing rapidly during 
the next years. With this growth 
came a need for a larger news- 
paper. In 1901 the name was 
changed to The College Signal 
and in 1914 it became The Mass- 
chusctts Collegian! 

Still a four column one page 
paper composed of straight 
printed matter and a minimum 
of pictures, the Collegian served 
the campus community adequate- 
ly until 1924. 

Not until 1951 did the Colle- 
gian become a bi-weekly news- 
paper. 

In the last seven years the 
University has grown in size and 
with it has come an increased 
demand for wider news coverage. 
To answer this call, the Collegian 
became a tri-weekly newspaper 
in 1956. 

With the probability that the 
student body will be doubled in 
e few years, the Collegian's cir- 
culation and coverage must in- 
crease. 



Blasco States That 
New Parking Areas 
Must Be Built Soon 

"More parking space must be 
created soon," said Chief Blasco, 
head of th« Campus Police, re- 
cently. With 1359 cars crowded 
into the few available places on 
campus, parking is becoming a 
major problem. 

One hundred ninety automo- 
biles are using the North lot, 
while the South lot in front of 
the cage holds approximately 18 
student cars Since both faculty 
and construction workers must 
also park there, things are very 
crowded. 

The East parking lot, Mills 
dormitory, dorm No. 15, and the 
rear of the men's dormitories 
provide space for 680 cars. Lewis 
and the women's quadrangle 
have space for 60 to 70 com- 
muters plus resident students. 

The cinders lots, by the mar- 
ried students' dorms, poses an- 
other problem. With 200 com- 
muters and 175-200 fraternity 
and sorority members parking 
their cars there, any great in- 
crease in commuters will make it 
necessary for the Greeks to park 
elsewhere. 




Now on sale at A. J. Hastings in Amherst, the Collegian is now 
available to faculty of both colleges and also to the residents of 
Amherst. Pictured above is Mr. Hastings with historic first-sale 
issue.

Operetta Guild Holds 
Auditions To October 31 



by MARGARET KIMBALL 
Guild Reporter 

This year the Operetta Guild 

is using the month of October 

to hold all casting meetings, au- 
ditions, and question periods for 

its production of "Damn Yan- 

koea. N 

The Guild offers opportunity 
for all interested students to 
gather experience about any 
phase of musical plays. James 
Hollister, financial manager of 
the Operetta Guild, stated an- 
other objective, "Just the fun of 
working together on a show is 
worth whatever time and energy- 
is required of an individual." 

"Th.- Red Mill" by Victor Her- 
bert was the first musk'al pre- 

■anted by the operetta duiid. 

This play was offered to the 
public In 1!»17. the same year 
that Mass. State became the 
University of Massachusetts. 

The work on the current pro- 
duction which played over three 
years on Broadway, will for- 
mally start on Wednesday, Oct. 1 
with a meeting in Memorial Hall 
at 6:15. All students who are in- 
terested in making and/or de- 
signing the scenes for "Damn 
Yankees" are invited by the 
Guild Board to this meeting. 

On Tuesday, Oct. I at 6:15 
there will be interviews held for 
those people interested in ch< 
ography and dancing. This will 
also be held in Memorial Hall. 

On Oct. 14 all musicians are 



invited to a meeting at which the 
score will be discussed by direc- 
tor Doric Alviani. This year the 
(iuild hopes to use the full musi- 
cal arrangement by Adler and 
Ross. This meeting will also be 
held at Memorial Hall at 6:15. 

A snack party, the first for the 
Guild, will be held at 5:30, Oct. 
1!) at Mem-.rial Hall. This gath- 
ering which has a social purpose 
will, as director Alviani stated,

Campus Leaders Meet In 

Baker And VanMeter 



by KEVIN DONOVAN 

"The Senate, in charge of the 
Student Activity Tax, ultimately 
controls the purse of recognized 
student organizations on cam- 
pus," stated Dave Wilson, Presi- 
dent of the Student Senate last 
Thursday night in a combined 
meeting of members of the Exec- 
utive, Legislative and Judicial 
branches of the Student Govern- 
ment. 

Large freshman audiences in 
Baker and Van Meter attended 
the program planned to orientate 
freshman men in the policies, 
plans and functions of the Stu- 
dent Government. 

Speakers were Robert Dall- 
meyer, President of the Senior 
Class, Chief Justice Emil Sulz- 
berger '59 of Men's Judiciary and 
David Wilson, President of the 
Student Senate. 

The Student Activity Tax re- 
quires each student to pay 
twenty dollars per year from 
which the Senate appropriates 
funds to perform their functions. 
The Collegian, YaHoo and Quar- 
terly are tangible examples of 
the tax's benefits. 

The Senate acts as the formal 



sounding board of student opin- 
ions, complaints and plaudits. 

President Wilson stressed the 
importance of Senate committees 
as the Workhorses of the Senate. 
The important Elections Com- 
mittee is currently in the process 
of conducting the annual dormi- 
tory, fraternity and sorority elec- 
tions. 

Senior Class President Robert 
Dallmeyer, speaking for the ex- 
ecutive, said "The class officers 
are responsible for the proper 
conduct of all business effecting 
their respective classes and for 
running traditional events." 

Commencement activities are 
conducted directly by the class 
officers. 

Men's Judiciary, a group of 
five men chosen for their intellect 
and sense of responsibility, gov- 
erns, in cooperation with the 
Dean of Men, the conduct of men 
undergraduates in their relation- 
ships with each other and with 
the university. 

Misdemeanors of men students 

along with cases of malpractices 

are referred to this body for the 

specific function of helping the

Sen. Constitution About 
The Election Of Members 



A number of students have 
expressed an interest in the 
method used to determine allo- 
cation of Senate positions. 
Therefore, Section 3, Items 1, 2, 
and 3, of Article II of the Stu- 
dent Senate Constitution is pre- 
sented here verbatim. 

"The total number of Senators 
shall be forty-one. 

"There shall be nine Senators 
elected at large, three each from 
the junior, sophomore and fresh- 
man l lasses. Senators at large 
shall be elected at the same 
time as class officers. 

"Each freshman dormitory 
shall be entitled to one voting 
Senator for each one hundred 
se\ eat] -five (I7.">) students or 
fraction thereof and an addition- 
al voting Senator for each mul- 
tiple of one hundred seventy-five 
students within fifty percent plus 
or minus the said multiple. A 
freshman dormitory is described 
as any dormitory with a (no- 
thirds majority of freshmen resi- 
dents. 

"The remaining number shall 
be apportioned among the resi- 



dential areas according to the 
following proportions: multiply 
tin- total population of the resi- 
dential areas being considered by 
the total number of Senators to 
be elected from all residential 
areas and divide by the total 
population of all residential 
areas. This figure, rounded off 
to the nearest whole number, 
given the number of Senators 
from the area under considera- 
tion. The residential areas are 
as follows: each dormitory, ex- 
cluding those classed as fresh- 
Mian dormitories, the fraterni- 
ties, the cities, the com- 
muters, and the married stu- 
dent 

This year positions were allo- 
cated as follows: one each for 
(•reenough, Butterfield. < 'hud- 
bourne. Mills, Abbey, Hamlin, 
Leach, Thatcher, Lewis, and 
the married students. 

Two positions each for: Dorm 
Slf>, Van Meter, Maker. Brooks, 
Arnold, Knowlton, and the BetOT 
ities; and four positions each for 
the CommuCcn and Fraternities. 



Plan October Symposium 



The cont roversial subject of 
atomic iKimb testing will be dis- 
cussed at a symposium here at 
the University early in October. 
Each of the four speakers will 
give a prepared statement of his 
views on the subject, "That Fur- 
ther Development of Nuclear 

Weapons Should Be Prohibited 

by International Agreement." 

The symposium if designed to 
familiarize the members of the 
Debating Society with this topic, 



which they will debate on in 
competition later this year. Here 
ulso, students who plan to enter 
this year's Intramural Debates 
will have an opportunity to n 
the members of the Dictating So- 
ciety and to observe thei»- meth- 
ods of collecting material. 

Those interested in the Intra- 
mural Debates should contact 
Victor Gagnon, manager of the 
Society, before November 19.

Collegian Makes Progress 

Saturday, Sept. 27, marked a milestone 
in the history of the Collegian. For the first 
time since it has been printed three times a 
week, the Collegian was put on sale to the 
general public at Hastings in Amherst. 

As added proof that progress is prev- 
alent in all aspects of university life, the 
goals of the Collegian arc also broadening, as 
is the scope of material being printed. 

The Collegian can serve in the Amherst 
community by informing the public of the 
aims, interests, and activities of the Univer- 
sity which, of course, affect the community 
as a whole. It has been said that "the news- 
paper is responsible for its own significance 
in the community." Just how significant the 
Collegian will prove we shall soon see. 



University Discipline Board 

The general activity of the University Discipline 
Board is to give advice on operations in discipline 
areas. The board handles cases which are too serious 
for the Judiciary alone to Judge and which need 
faculty Judgment as well. Thus, both faculty and stu- 
dent points of view are represented. 

All cases of serious misbehavior are heard by 
the board, and throughout the hearing the student 
has every chance to present his own side of the 

stor>- 

Recently much time was devoted to the discus- 
sion of plagiarism and its effect on the university 
community. The committee reviewed several appeals 
from sudenta about dropping courses for plagiar- 
ism. If a student is caught plagiarizing any mater- 
ial, he receives an automatic F in that course. 

As previously stated, in order to have a full PJ 
trum si opinion, both faculty and students are in- 
cluded on the board. Although the faculty members 
um»»-r, and thereby could outvote, the student 

nbers, there is little danger of any conflict oc- 
curring. In nine years there has been only one dis- 
agreement ).. tween faculty and student members 
about a decision. 

The student body can look upon the board not 
as just another insignificant committee but as a 
group of hard working individuals who consider 

r work seriously sad actually accomplish some- 

, g . The I'n Discipline Board thus has a 

dual responsibility, first, to the individual student, 
and second, to the entire university community.

EDITOR'S MAILBOX 



Responsibility of Act Questioned 

To the Editor: 

The motto of the C«U»gim* 1st "A Free and Rf-spnn-jible Press." 
Everyone in the student body is cognizant of this fact. What they 
may not be aware of is that this is not completely true. A Colhaia-n 
staff member may use his position of influence with the student body 
to promote his own selfish interests. Such a one is the writer who 
uses the pseudonym "Roger Parker" or a variation thereof. Under 
this name he writes stories on which it would not look good for his 
real name to appear: for, you see, this man is also a student senator 
who likes to back himself up through a tax-supported free press. This 
is in no way my conception of a responsible act. 

I do not mean to criticize in any way the majority of honest 
and hard-working Collegian staff members for whom I have only the 
greatest respect. They often put in long hours with no compensation 
but continual criticism. Rather, I an; protesting the fact that a mem- 
ber of the staff can, through his high position on the paper, do what 
it is a rule that no mere student can do, viz.: sign an assumed name 
to his articles. This I speak against, and will continue to speak against 
as long as this is the policy of "A Free and Responsible Press."

Editorial Challenged 



To the Editor: 



The editorial by J.A.M. in Friday's Collegian was so completely 
erroneous in fact, and consequent opinion, that I doubted it could 
have been written by a college student. 

First, I question the terminology "unjust." and "un-called for 
offensive" of the Chinese Communists. It has been widely publicized 
that the Nationalist Chinese have been making frequent provocative 
raids on the mainland from the islands of Quemoy and Matsu. How 
could a counter-attack in ANY war be termed "unjust," and "un- 
called for?" 

Second, I question the title, "sovereign government" of National- 
ist China. Experts on International Law have debated for nine years 
as to whether the Nationalist or Communist government is the legal 
government of China, and also whether or not Taiwan is a part of 
the Chinese nation. Many would question the right of Chiang-Kai- 
-Shek to occupy and govern Taiwan by autocratic rule, since owner- 
ship was never settled at the close of World War II when the Jap- 
anese were forced to give it up. 

In view of this autocratic rule, without consent of the natives of 
Taiwan, I question the usage of Nationalist China a "symbol of free- 
dom." Chiang would probably be better characterized as representing 
only a non-communist rule, rather than a free rule. The two are 
not necessarily synonymous. 

Finally, the present situation in China is, I believe, quite dif- 
ferent from that which exited in 1938, as alluded to by your editorial 
writer. The Nationalists and Communists have been engaged in a 
civil war since 1949. To be sure, there has been outside interference 
from other nations on both sides. However, this does not alter the 
fact that this is a conflict between two Chinese factions concerning 
Chinese territory and Chinese people. 

A college editorial stating categorically such erroneous and/or 
debatable "facts" as those which appeared in this one in question 
would lead me to doubt the veracity and credibility of its entire edi- 
torial opfnion.

An Obligation To Tomorrow 

Editor* Note: This is the sixth installment of an article by Dr. 
Mh,rt Schweitzer reprinted from the Saturday Review. 

There is reason for an English M.P. saying: "He who uses atomic 
weapons becomes subject to the fate of a bee, namely, when it stings 
it will perish." 

Radioactive clouds, resulting from a war between East and West 
would imperil humanity everywhere. There would be no need to use 
up the remaining stock of atomic and hydrogen bombs now running 
literally into the thounandn. 

A nuclear war is therefore the most senseless and lunatic act 
which could ever take place. This must be prevented. 

When America had its atomic monopoly, it was not necessary to 
equip its allies with nuclear weapons. Owing to the end of the mo- 
nopoly, however, this situation is changing. A whole family of nuclear 
weapons now exists that can be fitted into the military capability 
of smaller nations. 

As a result, the United States is considering a departure from 
its stated principl. D >? fcO put atomir M into the hands of other 

countries. If it does so. this could liavo the gravest consequences. On 
the other hand, it in comprehensible that the t'nited States wishes 
to supply the NATO countries with such new weapons for defense 
against the Soviet I'nion. The existence of such arms constitutes s 
new cause of war between the Soviet I'nion and the U.S., one that did 
not exist before. Thus, the ground is Isid open for s nuclear conflict 
on European soil. a» far as Moscow and Kharkov, up to 2.400 miles 
swsy. Similarly. London, Paris, and Rome sre within easy reach of 
Soviet rocketry. 



Student Mental Health 

To practice "preventive psychiatry" is the fore- 
most aim of Dr. Rufus Vaughn, Director of Clinical 
Psychology in the university's new student mental 
health service. Since the beginning of the fall se- 
mester, he has had thirty-two or more student con- 
sultations. The major category of problems he has 
encountered has been academic concerning students 
who have adequate intellectual capacity, yet find 
difficulty in studying and learning certain material. 
Other cases have involved minor mild depression, 
confusion, and indecision. 

"One thing I find interesting," said Dr. Vaughn, 
"is that the sophomores seem to be the most inter- 
ested, inquisitive, and perceptive about the pro- 
gram." 

Asked about the reasons for his particular in- 
terest in working with college students, the psychia- 
trist attributed it to his background. As an M.D., he 
interned with the U.S. Public Health Service in San 
Francisco where he first "became acquainted with 
the broader aspects of medicine." Later, while re- 
ceiving Psychiatric training at the University of 
California at Los Angeles, he was appointed to the 
teaching staff. Experience teaching young people 
directly influenced his interest in them and their 
problems. 

At about the same time, he took a position with 
the Veterans' Administration Hospital in Los An- 
geles. The marked contrast between the severely ill 
men there and the students he taught at the uni- 
versity emphasized in his mind the great merits of 
preventive psychiatry or mental hygiene. 

Dr. Vaughn is at present the entire staff of the 
new service. He says that during this first year he 
will be "feeling the pulse of the campus" in an ef- 
fort to see exactly what is needed here with a view 
toward the ultimate establishment of a full size 
mental hygiene clinic. Such a clinic would have a 
regular staff including a social worker, secretary, 
etc. 

Only half of his work deals with the students 
directly. The other consists of conferring with in- 
structors and other persons who work with the stu- 
dent body. "If I see enough people," he remarked. 
"I can help avoid certain types of pitfalls in dealing 
with students." Some of the people he has conferred 
with already have been the chaplains and dormi- 
tory house counselors, not to mention teaching fac- 
ulty and administrators. 

His presence here on campus is by the appoint- 
ment of the Massachusetts Division of Mental Hy- 
giene. Since he is not a faculty member, he is in 
a position to be completely objective in his analysis 
of the university's problems. 

Speaking about psychiatric treatment in general, 
Vaughn mentioned that it naturally depends on the 
individual case. However, what he usually uses is 
"psycho-analytically oriented psychotherapy." This 
may be directive or nondirective, but is "based on 
the analytic principles of Freud, necessarily modi- 
fied in the light of later studies." 

Dr. Vaughn emphatically refuted the provincial 
notion held by so many people that psychiatrists 
are primarily concerned with treating "crazy or 
deranged" persons. This is "certainly not" his "ma- 
jor interest. ' 

Concerning the general scepticism of the public 
regarding the necessity of some to seek psychiatric 
help, he feels strongly thut There is something 
wrong with a society which is solicitous of a per- 
son with a broken leg but becomes annoyed with 
someone who has a broken ego." 

Laughingly relating some of the paradoxes en- 
countered in his profession, Vaughn mentioned the 
person who "just has a nervous stomach." but "noth- 
ing wrong" with him "mentally." Physical stomach 
upsets almost always have psyc v dogical or nervous 
causes. The stomach cannot be 'nervous' of itself. 

It must be pointed out here that, although the 
■•hiatrist is young, and enthusiastic about his 
w.irk, h<> || only one man. Therefore, he has to work, 
for the time being, in a primarily diagnostic capac- 
ity. It would be impossible to undertake any long 
term psychotherapy. More serious problems must be 
referred to a private psychiatrist. 

Dr. Vaughn's office is located on the second floor 
of the main infirmary building.

It's Greek To Me y £?Z'*r£L The Campus Beat 



by MIKE KLEINEKMAN 

With the B.U.-UMass football 
game an event of the past, it can 
be safely said that the fraterni- 
ties have once again demon- 
strated their value to the social 
functioning of this campus. 

The various open houses af- 
forded the fraternity brothers 
and the many visitors from B.U. 
places to meet each other after 
the rain-drenched contest. These 
late-afternoon gatherings 
brought the students from both 
schools together in a cheerful 
and friendly manner. In the eve- 
ning, most of the fraternities 
held parties which were very well 
attended by the guests from Bos- 
ton Un ivmity . 

Many of the visitors remarked 
that these parties were amongst 
the best that they had attended. 

Of course fraternities do not 
exist just for social purposes. 
The fact that the Inter-Frater- 
nity Council awards trophies for 
the overall scholarship achieve- 
ments of the various houses 
points this up quite forcefully. 

The first three places in this 
field for the 1957-58 school year 
went to Alpha Gamma Rho, 
Alpha Epsilon Pi, and Alpha 
Sigma Phi respectively. 

The standings in the other 
categories were as follows: foot- 
ball — Sig Ep, Kappa Sig, Tep; 
basketball — Kappa Sig, Thcta 
Chi, Lambda Chi; Softball — 
Lambda Chi, Kappa Sig, Phi 
Sig; bowling — QTV, SAE, Sig

Chief Justice Salzberger 
stressed the core of Judiciary as 
a helping organization. 

In order to orientate the stu- 
dent body in this relatively 
closed branch of the Student 
Government, Men's Judiciary 
proposes to issue a pamphlet 
stating the rules snd regulations 
of men students. Along with this 
measure, a member of Men's 
Judiciary will be made available 
to students at a certain time and

ters.

conducted by the Men's Affairs

At its last meeting, the IFC

policy of appointing junior rep- 
resentatives to serve as commit- 
tee chairmen throughout the 
year. Thus the senior members 
can serve as experienced ad- 
visors. 

The plans for strengthening 
the fraternity system through 
unity are apparently taking 
shape and the forthcoming skits 
and Sing should give us a clear 
view of how effectively the 
houses can function together.

All of a sudden, everyone is 
conducting meetings. The one 
day that I have enough space in 
which to write creatively, every- 
body decides to get together and 
meet, like Phi Eta Sigma, for 
example. 

This Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. in 
the SU Franklin Room, there 
will be a Smoker for prospective 
members of Phi Eta Sigma. All 
present brothers are asked to 
attend a 7 p.m. meeting, also in 
Franklin, and to bring their keys. 

For those who do not compre- 
hend the workings of an honor 
society, the above- mentioned 
keys are not the kind of keys 
with which one opens doors. 
They are different; they symbo- 
lize something. What they 
symbolize does not really matter 
to me as I will never see any. 

If you hadn't read this column, 
you would never have known 
that there will be u pen-lass try- 
outs for the Modern Dance Cluh 
at the Women's Physical Educa- 
tion Bldg. Wednesday at 7:30 

There will also be a meeting of 



present members at that time. 

Notice some funny-looking 
people running around, drooling 
and laughing hysterically? These 
are the veterans of Ya-Hoo, 
campus humor magazine. All 
those interested in joining this 
elite group should attend the 
staff meeting tmorrow at 4 p.m. 
in the Ya-Hoo office. 

The following notice went over 
so well that we're going to do 
it all over ag.iin: Attention all 
EE's and Physicists! The first 
meeting of the AIEE-IRE will 
be tomorrow at 7:30 p.m. in EB 
120. Along with a film, refresh- 
ments, and door prizes, plans 
will be made for a membership 
drive and committees. 

The first meeting of the Socio- 
logy Club will be held in the SU 
Middlesex Room Wednesday at

BU Outlasts UM, 28-14 
In Underwater Tilt 



by TED RAYMOND 



Amherst, Saturday, Sspt J7— Sparkplug mudder Paul Cancro had to come off the 
bench to bail out "Big League" B.U. as they finally earned a 28-14 decision over a bull- 
dog tough UMass club at rain soaked Alumni Field today. 

' The Redmen had their finest hour as they battled the classy Terriers on even terms

of a 13-6 score. 

Cancro, who had seen little 
action in the tilt as he was still 
recuperating from a muscle pull, 
came off the bench in the fourth 
period to romp 44 yards and set 
up the Terriers third touchdown 
and then scoot for an identical 
44 to score their final clinching 
tally. 

Terriers Score First 
B.U. got on the scoreboard 
first when Emo DiNitto hit Jim 
Kenney in the end one on a 16 
yard scoring pass play. Kenny 
kicked for the PAT and B.U. 
was in front, 7-0. 

The Redmen battled right back 
into contention in the 1 second 
stanza when Buzz Richardson 
rolled into the end zone on a 
four yard buck to climax a 40 
yard drive. Gerry Walls' rollout 
pass was no good and B.U. still 
led, 7-6. 

Gamble Paya Off 
The Terriers made good on a 
daring chance before intermis- 
sion to take a 13-6 lead. The 
Redmen had halted a B.U. push 
on their own 43 when Tony 
Piraino pounced on a Terrier 
fumble. Then on the first play of 
the series Jack Conway swept 
wide on the QB option and 
pitched out to Bill Reynolds as 
he was being hit. The floating 
lateral never got to Reynolds as 
Jim Girouard, coming up from 
his defensive halfback position, 
took the big chance and dashed 
in between the pair and picked 
off the pitchout. He gamboled 
42 yards like Dreikorns Bread, 
O.ntou"hed by human hands, for 
the tally. 

When the halftime horn 
sounded the scoreboard read, 
B.U. 13 UMass 6. 

The best way to describe the 
thin! period is to call it a soggy 
struggle in the slop. Neither 
team could move as the field 
began to take on the appearance 
of College Pond. After clearing 
for :i whfls before the game, the 
■ides opened up again midway 
through the first quarter and it 
poured throughout the remainder 
of the contest. 

The Redmen had one chance 
but couldn't click. John Montosi 
intercepted a Terrier aerial and 
went chugging down the right 
sideline with three blockers but 
the l..m- B.U. player ln-tween 
Monty ami the promised land

snuck between the escort and 
brought him down after a 35 
yard jaunt. UMass couldn't keep 
the drive going in the mud and 
lost the pigskin after two series 
of downs. 

Coach Steve Sinko, being 
thoroughly alarmed by now, 
pulled all stops and sent Cancro 
into the game in the fourth 
period. 

Cancro immediately put the 
Terriers on more comfortable 
ground as he hauled in Buzz 
Richardson's punt on his own 35 
and brought it right back up the 
field like a retrieving dog. This 
44 yard outburst gave the Ter- 
riers a lift and they pushed the 
ball over the goal line shortly 
after as DiNitto rolled out to his 
left to pass, saw a clear lane, 
and dashed over for the touch- 
down. Kenney again converted 
and the Terriers were home safe 
with a 20-6 lead. 

B.U. added eight more quickly. 
Len Pare broke through the Red- 
men forward wall to block Buzz 
Richardson's punt in the end 
zone and it rolled out of the zone 
giving the Terriers an automatic 
two points on the safety. 

Then UMass elected to kick 
off. On the first play following 
the kick Cancro took off on an 
off-tackle slant and galloped 44 
yards to paydirt for the final 
B.U. tally. The attempted con- 
version failed and B.U. had a 
28-6 cushion. 

Redmen Tally Late 
The Redmen then went to the 
air in desperation. They didn't 
have much luck on the sloppy 
field, but then with only 45 sec- 
onds left on the clock Conway 
K<>t off a long heave and Bill 
Reynolds gathered it in and 
sprinted into the end zone to 
complete a 52 yard scoring aeri- 
al. Dick Hose slammed over for 
the two conversion points and the 
scoring was all over. 

The Redmen grabbed the ball 
again with seconds left to play 
and almost clicked once more 
when Conway pitched deep to 
Hickman to put the ball in scor- 
ing position but the play was 
nullified on a penalty and the 
clock ran out on the Redmen be- 
fore they could push another 
tally across.

RAY-VINGS 

The air was electric with ex- 
citement during the first half as 
it looked like an upset in the 
making but the rain bogged down 
both clubs and neither could 
seem to get the "Big Play" off 
until Cancro racked up his two 
44 yard jaunts . . . 

The Redmen were really up for 
the tilt and general consensus is 
that if they can put out six 
more efforts of the caliber of to- 
day's performance they will send 
a lot of teams away talking to 
themselves . . . 

Charlie O'Rourke's comment 
following the rugged tilt, "Our 
boys really played the brand of 
ball they have in them today. 
This club has arrived." . . . 

A big point of contention will 
be resolved when the game 
movies are observed. It certain- 
ly looked like Bill Reynolds in- 
tercepted a pass that the officials 
declared was grounded . . . 

It looked like John Montosi 
was another victim of a bad call 
when he was chased for fighting. 
BU guard Ken McDermott 
leaped on Monty and threw a 
couple of hooks and when Mon- 
tosi scuffled with him they were 
both ejected . . . 

Off their performances in their 
first two contests, it looks like 
UConn has another powerhouse. 
They were edged by Ivy League 
power Yale by a slim two points 
today . . . 

Brandeis was clobbered by Col- 
by, thus lending support to the 
conjecture that the tables could 
be reversed when the Redmen 
tangle with the Judges one week 
hence. Last season the Judges 
laid down a 47-7 sentence on 
UMass . . . 



Booters Beat CG, 1-0 
In Soggy Sea Of Mud 

by PETE TEMPLE 
A hustling Redmen soccer team, playing in what one offiical 
termed, "The worst playing conditions I've ever seen," eked out a 
1-0 win over Coast Guard at New London Saturday in a driving down- 
pour. 

The lone tally of the contest 
came in the third period when 
Jim Rosenberg kicked the ball 
into the nets. The ball was lost 
in the confusion of mud and play- 
ari in front of the goal when Ros- 
enberg barged through, pushing 
both players and the ball into the 
goal for the score. 

The Redmen dominated play 
throughout the rain-soaked game, 
and would probably have scored 
more if it had not been for the 
terrible condition of the field. The 
Coast Guarders seldom penetrat- 
ed Umie territory, giving goalie 
Dick Williams a comparatively 
easy job in registering the shut- 
out. 



by AL HERMAN 

The freshman football team 
held its first intra squad scrim- 
mage of the season Friday on the 
athletic field. 

It was evident that the Frosh 
have plenty of strong, fast line- 
men to reinforce their talented 
backfield. This combination plus 
the rousing enthusiasm of the en- 
tire squad, make the team a 
strong contender for an unde- 
feated season. 

Men Look Good 

On the line, centers Carmen 
Scarpa and Frank Borselli, and 
tackles Jerry Kane and Jerry 
Pudolsky and guard John Koz- 
aka displayed good offensive as 
well as defensive skill. Ends Ken 
Ekburg and Ken Judge seemed 
to show a little bit more hustle 
than their teammates. 

Backfield Strong 

Also, quarterback Lenny La- 
Bella and halfbacks Mike An- 
drews and Joe Long appeared to 
outperform the rest of the back- 
field. 

The squ-d should have little 
trouble with any of its four riv- 
als — UConn, Boston Univ., 
Brown, and New Hampshire — if 
they display the same ability 
and confidence that they did at 
their first scrimmage.

Perform Tomorrow 



Bambi Linn and Rod Alexan- 
der, probably television's best 
known dance team, will api>ear 
at the cage at 8 p.m. on Thurs- 
day, October 2. 

The program, to be called 
"From Minstrel Days to Swing- 
time," will include many favor- 
ite works from the television 
spectaculars in which they have 
appeared during the past five 
years. 

While their program is only 
being organized, Mr. Alexander 
has promised that it will include 
the acclaimed Rogers-Astaire 
takeoff they did on the Ed Wynn 
Show, and the rooftop ballet they 
performed on the Steve Allen 
Show that was actually per- 
formed on the roof of New 
York's Hudson Theatre. They 
will also revive many of their 
favorite numbers from their as- 
sociation with Max Liebman's 
"Show of Shows." 

Musical accompaniment for the 
attraction will be provided by an 
ensemble of five musicians on the 
stage. While the program does 
not require scene iy, the company 
will be fully costumed, bringing 
with it such props and other 
equipment as will be needed. 




Lion Greeted

Bring them back alive? In this 
case the proverbial statement 
does not hold true. The animal

Last week, four student.; from

increased appropriations for a 
UMass enrollment which will in-

year than since World War II. 

Mather also stated that if con- 
struction and future expansion 
go forward as planned, the Uni- 
versity will be educating more 
than 10,000 students by IMS. He 
also predicted that the student 
body could be as high as 15,000

available space. In addition, Ma-

When asked how they brought 
the animal back, the students

er. In view of the probable com- 
motion this Would have caused 
however, they put him in the

ELECTIONS 
PREDOMINATE 
TONIGHT 

by KICHABD MacLEOD 
Senate Reporter 

Election-night, jitters might 
mean an even shorter meeting 
than is planned, when the Stu- 
dent Senate rings the bell on the 
last meeting of the '57- '58 Senate 
ytar tonight at 7 in the Council 
chamber. 

Final Concert Action 
The only old business expected 
is filial action on the Conceit As- 
sociation budget guarantee. Dis- 
cussion will pr obab ly center on 
the percentage to be used, 50 or 
80 per cent, on the motion which 
was referred to Finance Com- 
mittee last week. 

Elections 
Immediately following the 
meeting, Senators will be dis- 
patched to the voting places, 
where they will conduct the 
elections for the \".x-':>:» Senate, 
being sure t "insure an effi- 
cient" and "equitable election," 
according to their Constitution. 
Interest Varies 
Interest will be running from 
low to feverish, with nine un- 
opposed on the ballots for 
(J reeks, and the women's dorms, 
and as many as ten vying for 
two positions in Van Meter. 
Wilson In Dilema 
An interesting note was added 
to the fraternity elections, as 
Pro-ten. President Dave Wilson 
'59 failed to return his nomina- 
tion papers to the Dean of Men's 
office by the 4 p.m. deadline 
Monday. Since his name will not 
be on the ballot, he will base his 
election on write-in votes.

Boola-Boola Bull 
Predicted Hit 
For Varieties 

"The way things are going, 
this year's Campus Varieties 
performance, "Boola-Boola Bull', 
should prove to be one of the 
most successful and entertaining 
shows ever put on by the student 
body," Stated Reveler Bill Choui- 
nard '60. 

The Revelers and Adelphia are 
sponsoring this year's production 
which will be held December 12 
and 13 in Bowker Auditorium. 
The procedes of this show will be 
used for scholarships for students 
on campus. 

CampuB Varieties, a show 
directed and produced by the 
students, includes original scripts 
and musical scores. •Much credit 
must he given to Don Gagnon 
and Bill Uhouinard, musical and 
Stags directors, and to Dick 
Robinson, Barb Kelley, and 
Warren Vinal, as well as the 
other members of Revelers and 
Adelphia. 

In brief, Boola-Boola Bull

A REAPPRAISAL 

Thanks for being so very observant and 
picking out the unintended propaganda in 
last Friday's Collegian editorial on the Que- 
moy crisis. 

After sifting through a few dozen letters, 
we have decided that the comment aroused 
has been advantageous to the here-to-fore 
unexperienced editorial writer. 

Although the islands are but a few hun- 
dred yards off the China mainland, it is still 
not for us to indict the reds as bloodthirsty 
warmongers, or pat the backs of the nation- 
alists as the rightful rulers of the mainland. 
However, one fact should also appear clear 
to us all. In this day of missiles with the 
speed of light and unbelievable accuracy 
doesn't it seem wise to fight . . . if we must 
fight over a buffer state like Formosa and 
its little islands rather than have all of our 
defensive and offensive bases in California, 
Oregon and Washington? 

What do you think? 

J.W. 




DOES ANYONE DISAGREE? 

To the Editor: 

I believe that a Summit Conference devoted to 
the discussion and final cessation of Nuclear Arma- 
ment would be the worst and most fatal error the 
United States could possibly make. 

In this period of economic depression it is most 
important that the scientists are kept busy invent- 
ing and developing nuclear weapons Worrying 
about total and final warfare gives students and 
citizens a national loyalty which keeps many of 
them from turning to other ways of life such as 
Communism and existentialism. 

We have spent many millions of dollars on ma- 
chim i y and atomic weapons. To allow these wea- 
pons to rot and rust would be wasteful, and during 
a depression waste is the one thing we must avoid. 
Waste is bad for the morale of the American 
citisens. 

We have come out victorious from all world wars 
ao far, and the rr is no reason to iroxgrine that we 
will not do ao in the future. If we are all blown 
off the face of the earth it is in the cards that we 
thould .ave such an end.

The patients at the Northampton State Hospital 
are looking forward again this year to the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts students, who volunteer 
their time and talent. 

Miss Judy Abrams, on your campus, is in charge 
of arrangements for this program. On October 7, 
1958 at 6:30 p.in .. Volunteer Services have arranged 
a tour and introduction to this program for any 
students interested in the work. 

Volunteers provide companionship, help the pa- 
tient to retain his individuality in the midst of 
sameness of day and regimentation of schedules, 
and they offer a diversity of recreational activities. 
It also is an ideal opportunity for students to in- 
crease their understanding of mental illness and 
treatment of patients. 

The patients ere most grateful to the students, 
who gave so much of tht ir time last year, and look 
forward to seeing them agsin this fall. 
Sincerely yours, 
Martha Sachs, Supervisor 
of Volunteer Activities 



by MARK VAN DORAN 

(Poet and professor of Columbia University in an ad- 
dress at the inauguration of President Richard Glenn Get- 
tell of Mount Holyoke College.) 

The words of a teacher bear so many responsibilities 
that if all of them were ever present in his mind together 
he would grow as silent as the grave. 

The teacher's responsibility to the student is so huge 
and heavy a thing that no teacher in his right mind con- 
siders it at all. No good teacher, I mean. For a good teach- 
er has had the experience of learning that his words have 
an effect upon those who sit lief ore him: an effect . . . that 
will endure for decades . . . 

But if he commence- 1 each of his classes by wondering 
what future actions or thoughts were going to be the result 
of what he said, if he asked himself seriously what charac- 
ters he was going to shape, if ever so oddly or so little, he 
might be terrified before he spoke one word. Normally he is 
blessed with a healthy indifference to such considerations. 
He is concerned with what he is going to say, and with 
whether or not it is true. 

I scarcely need to explain that the kind of teacher I 
have in view is the kind for whom the subject was created. 
It is his subject; he spends his life thinking about it, wheth- 
er in or out of class; it is his second if not his first nature; 
it is what gives him joy. No student ever fails to be aware 
of this. 

A teacher can fool his colleagues ; he may even fool his 
president ; but he never fools his students. They know when 
he loves his subject and when he does not. 

They may think such love to be a queer thing, and they 
may resolve never to fall victim to it themselves ; but their 
respect for it will never cease. And respect for a subjet, 
like respect for an idea, is the beginning of wisdom . . . 

The teacher's responsibility to his subject is so serious 
a thing that it of course precludes anything like a parade 
of personality for its own sake. The good teacher is not try- 
ing to be a personality ; he is trying to be a person who un- 
derstands his subject and sinks himself into it. If he could 
he would disappear there altogether. 

The whimsical teacher — who cares only to impress his 
brilliance upon his class, or to deliver himself of eccentric 
opinions in the belief that such opinions are more interest- 
ing than the knowledge would be — is immemorially con- 
temptible. His students may like him for a while, but in the 
end they despise him for his condescension to his subject. 

The subject is a third thing that transcends both the 
teacher and the student. It is what the student should con- 
template. It is the only live thing in the room. 

The truly personal teacher is the most responsible to 
his subject. Because he knows it to be more important than 
himself, he is humble in its presence, and would rather die 
than misrepresent it. It existed before him, and will exist 
after him . . . 

All men know the same things, or the same thing: the 
same world. One might think it easy to do this, but it is so 
difficult that only a few succeed. We call them great men 
and women. 

What, for instance, is a great poet? One who sees what 
nobody else does? The contrary is surely true. If Shakes- 
peare is the greatest poet, or if Homer is, or Dante . . . 
the reason is not that he saw what nobody ever saw before ; 
he saw what evcryom* has seen, but with a clarity, intensity, 
and finally a humility which makes his subject even more 
interesting to us than he is. 

It was more interesting to him than his own self ever 
was; which is why we know so little about him, and why 
we know so much about the stories he told, the people he 
understood . . . 

So what shall we say of a teacher who makes his stu- 
dents hate Shakespeare? Wo shall say first of all that the 
teacher must have hated Shakespeare too. He only thought 
he loved him — or worse yet, he pretended that he did . . . 

The good teacher means it when he says he hopes his 
students will forget him. He never means, of course, that 
he hopes they will forget the subject. For him that would 
be tragedy ; it would mean that he himself had not existed. 

The resi*msii>ilities of the teacher are many and yet 
one. They are to himself, to his subject, to his students, to 
society, and to tell the truth . . . 



Commentary 

MOVIE: 
HARRY BLACK AND THE TIGER 

This is an interesting picture, with fine acting 
and good photography. The excellent acting can be 
explained by the fact that all the parts, with the ex- 
ception of one, call for little acting. The exception 
is in the figure of one, Bapu. played by I. S. Johar. 
This fellow is a scene stealer. I imagine he was or- 
iginally the comedy relief. However Mr. Johar man- 
ages to convey this humor combined with a depth 
and intensity of feeling for character that comes 
close to walking off with the show. 

Stewart Granger, Barbara Rush, and Anthony 
Steel are in the picture because their names appear 
in the cast and also because from scene to scene 
they can be observed to be talking and moving. Mr. 
Granger is at his best when concerned with the tiger. 
He is at his worst when concerned with Miss 
Rush. The picture has one definite flaw in the scene 
where these two realize they have fallen in love. This 
change of relationships occurs in the space of ap- 
proximately five seconds — in the middle of a conver- 
sation as a matter of fact — without any substantial 
basis or buildup. Perhaps I turned my head or closed 
my eyes momentarily and missed something. If not, 
this is probably some kind of speed record. 

However, I would like to get to what I consider 
to be the main flaws in the picture. They are, (1) the 
sanctioning of adultery and (2) the justification of 
sin. 

These are, perhaps, harsh flaws. I leave that to 
you future viewers to judge. To establish the situa- 
tion there is the well known triangle. Granger is the 
intruder to Steel and Miss Rush. The morning after 
Granger raises the question to Miss Rush that per- 
haps last night was a mistake. Her quick reply is to 
the effect that it wasn't. To which his quicker reply 
is, "that's what I wanted to hear." This is point 
number (1). 

The next step in the tableau is for her to break 
the news to hubby while Granger bags the tiger. 
However, on his return he finds that she hasn't 
and can't. Her reason is that she can't do it because 
he (hubby) and their son love each other so much. 
She can't sacrifice their happiness for hers. She is 
entirely generous and at this point has succeeded in 
failing her family at almost every point. She has 
assumed that her love does not matter to hubby and 
son so long as they have each other. She emphasizes 
this point at the end with a toast not to happiness 
but to contentment. This gives the impression that 
Granger and Miss Rush are the great martyrs. This 
is point (2). 

As a lsst point, it is obvious through the whole 
picture thst Granger is, always has been, and al- 
ways will be a martyr. This is true. But, what should 
also be obvious is that he is a self-martyr. He is the 
victim of his own mind. 

Despite what I have said above, I believe that 
this picture provides an entertaining evening. Es- 
pecially in the acting of Mr. Johar. This character 
is worth the price of the ticket by himself.

The Campus Beat 



•• 



by ALAN LUPO 



This week we salute the 
campus Grinder Man, mainly be- 
cause there is no one else to 
salute. Besides, the Grinder 
Man has never been recognized 
before by anyone except other 
Grinder men and it is conceiv- 
able that he may feel left out of 
the campus picture. And if 
there is anything we don't want, 
it's a Grinder Man with an in- 
feriority complex. 

Senior Sitting Schedules 
Those seniors who have failed 
to pick up their sitting schedules 
for senior pictures will meet in 
the Pump Room of Draper Hall 
to be promptly wiped out. How- 
ever, you can save yourself from 
this fate by picking up the 
schedules at the SU Lobby 
Counter or in the Index Office. 

The Management Club, for- 
merly known as the LA. Club, 
will present a film on Middle 
Management training entitled, 
"The Time is Now" tomorrow 
in the SU Council Chambers. 

Showing the film will be Ted 
Crowley, '58, of the Mutual 
Benefit Insurance Co. of Newark, 
N. J. Refreshments will be 
served, and all are cordially in- 
vited, especially freshmen Busi- 
ness majors. 

New History Club 
There will be a meeting of the 
History Club in the SU Barn- 
stable Room tomorrw at 11 a.m. 
All interested undergraduates 
and professors are invited. 

Until now, there has been no 
departmental club in History. A 
few majors have met recently to 
discuss the possible formation of 
such a ciub and drew up a tenta- 
tive program and sample consti- 
tution. 

Iii its embryonic stages the 
club is designed to fulfill a two- 
fold purpose: (1) To have histo- 
rians discuss with the club 
matters of historical significance, 
and (2) to give the students an 
opportunity to conduct informal 
discussions among themselves on 
topics of their own choosing. 

Anyone interested in the 
formation of such a group is 
invited to the meeting. 

The Commuters Club will 
meet tomorrow in the SU Nan- 
tucket Room where they will hold 
an election of officers. 

This is the last notice — the 
last one! No more after this one. 
Ill be all through soon, and 
then the nice people will let me 
go home. I've been here four 
days now . . . 

Revelers' Activity Night 
Don't forget Revelers' Activity 
Night this Friday, from 8 to 10 
p.m. in the SU! Here is your 
chance to learn about the vsrious 
activities available to you. All 
frosh are urged to drop over. 

Clubs who haven't been noti- 
fied should contact Rita Capolupo 
at KKG for information. 

I have heard in the Hatch 
that many freshmen girls do not 
know anything about the ROTC 
cadets whom they see every 
Tuesday morning at 1100 hours 
(that's army talk for 11 a.m.) 
converging on the Women's 
Athletic Field. 

It has also been mentioned 
that many of these same women 
have been known to laugh at 
these gentlemen! This has been 
cleared through intelligence, and 
we know this for a fact. If this 
keeps up, the freshmen cadets 
will be promptly instructed to 
laugh back on sight. 

What you people don't seem 
to realise is that the men in the 
brown suits art? the ready re- 
serve of this campus, and are on 




24 hour call to lend their services 
in panty raids, the selling of 
Girl Scout cookies, helping old 
ROTC sergeants across the street, 
and various military duties. 

Be 'sure to read Pete Munroe's 
"Land of Jazz" on page five — 
that's real music. Then read the 
Pollbearers and the cry for Rock 
and Roll. What a contrast! 



WAA Sponsors 
"My Square Lady 

"My Square Lady," a sport- 
musicale with student-written 
lyrics is being presented for all 
UMass women tomorrow in the 
physical education auditorium. 

The musicale is a series of 
skits, each built around a sport. 
Underlying everything is the 
theme of there being a place for 
everyone in WAA. 

Several Maroon Keys are 
also in the cast. 

This annual event has been 
organized by Elaine Prouty and 
Phyliss Rockwood, '61. 

The program is given with 
hope that it will give everyone 
an idea of the nature, scope and 
diversity of the year's offerings 
of the people behind WAA, staff 
and students. 

Fats Domino, they want. Can 
you picture that — Fats Domino 
Plays at I' Mas Cage. For a side 
feature, we can stick Presley in 
the locker room during breaks.

Quarterly Asks 
For New Blood 

It has come to the attention of 
the editorial staff of the "Quar- 
terly" that there are a lot of peo- 
ple on campus who write, yet 
the "Quarterly" is continually be- 
ing knocked for the lack of good 
material. Thus the "Quarterly" 
requests the best of your manu- 
scripts. Simply because "Atlan- 
tic" rejected them is no indication 
that we will (tongue in Cheek)! 

The "Quarterly" requests the 
submission of all material avail- 
able in order to provide an abun- 
dance of material from which to 
select the best. 

The "Quarterly" office is be- 
hind and t<> the left of the Col- 
lin inn office. There is a receptacle 
provided for new material. We 
do request neat and legible man- 
uscripts with adequate identifi- 
cation. 

There will be a meeting Thurs- 
day, Oct. 2, at 7 p.m. Those on 
the staff who do not attend will 
be dropped.

Campus Programs 
Start At Hospitals 

The student volunteer program 
at Northampton State and Leeds 
Hospitals is again under way. 
These groups are sponsored by 
the Campus Religious Council, in 
co-operation with similar groups 
from Smith, Amherst, and Mt. 
Hoi yoke. 

Under this program, volunteers 
give three evening hours once or 
twice per month entertaining the 
patients with games, cards, danc- 
ing or billiards. Those who have 
participated in the past were very 
much pleased with this type of 
work. An evaluation session with 
someone of authority follows each 
meeting. 



This work will especially inter- 
est would-be psychology and soci- 
ology majors; however, everyone 
is welcomed. Others would be 
equally educated by working with 
these people. 

Interested students should sign 
up at the S.U. desk. For more 
information, see Judy Abrams 
about Northampton and Barbara 
McGuire about Leeds. 

The orientation sessions will be 
October 7 for Northampton and 
both October 22 and 29 for Leeds.

SIGN OF GOOD TASTE 



Compiled by LARRY RAVNER '61 
40 YEARS AGO 

'•on a slippery field overhung by fog, Springfield College, with its 
eleven defeated Um Massachusetts football team at Pratt Field, 
Springfield, last Saturday afternoon by a store pi 14-0. The steady 
drizzle failed to dampen the enthusiasm of the targi BWWd of spec- 
tators." 

30 YEARS AGO 

"Scoring two touchdowns, one with the aid <>f a blocked kick, and 
the other the result of a forward pass, Ifiddlebary administered a 
12-0 defeat to our eleven on the Middlehury gridiron. Due to a driving 
rain, mixed with some sleet, the crowd was small. Neither team could 
launch their offensive because of the muddy conditions." 

20 YEARS AGO 

"Coach Chick BfcGeoch'l varsity football team continued their 
winning ways by overcoming the Middlebury College eleven last Sat- 
urday afternoon. In spite of the downpour, a fairly large crowd wit- 
nessed the Massachusetts victory . . ." 

10 YEARS AGO 

A fighting Redman squad made a thrilling last quarter comeback 
to tie a highly favored Tufts team, 13-13. In spite of an intermittent 
drizzle, a capacity crowd witnessed the spectacle. . ." 

And this year, very few of those attending last Saturday's game 
were seen wearing sunglasses! 



SOME OF MY FRIENDS 



by R. 

During English class every 
Monday at one o'clock two of my 
friends and I meet at the Hatch 
for coffee and talk. Our talk var- 
ies from football to philosophy, 
but the beverage is always the 
same— coffee. Two of us drink it 
black, and without sugar, the 
third pollutes his with sugar and 
cream. We two say that such 
pollution spoils the taste of good 
coffee. Our friend claims pollution 
makes good coffee taste better. 
Yet, all three of us agree that the 
coffee is good. 

My wife and I drive from 
South Amherst many nights to 
get a cup of coffee at the Hatch. 

I think that the coffee in every 



P.G. 

place in town has been sampled 
by me or some of my friends, and 
we all agree that the coffee in the 
Hatch is the best in town. 

This is not an advertisement 
to stimulate business for the Stu-

Wednesday's Confidential 

by Roger Parker 

Those two honorable Senators 
who wrote such an irrate letter 
to the editor in Monday's Col- 
legian seem to have overlooked 
certain rather obvious facts. 

First, justice was done, since 
the opposing side of the story 
was told. This, in itself is inte- 
resting, as one might make 
either of two conclusions. First, 
that the person under attack 
allowed the letter to be printed, 
allowed the finger of public ac- 
cusation to be pointed; or, that 
same person does not hold the 
power accredited him by the 
senators, viz, to use the Col- 
legian in any way he cares to 
use it, since #uch a "damaging" 
letter was printed. 

Another note, the Senators re- 
fused to include the real name of 
the person whom they were at- 
tacking. Libel is a printed un- 
truth against an identified subject. 

Perhaps, all that the two out- 
raged senators intimated is just 

not true. 

* * * * 

The word is out that the 1958 
Man-of-the Year, Richard J. 
Keogh, is running for reelection 
again on write-in votes down in 
Greenough. I>ong live Keoghism! 

"The WMUA station manager 
and a few other guys are acting 
as campaign managers for the 
ex-heroic senator from Green- 
ough," the Boss from Brooks an- 
nounced yesterday. 

That seems sort of odd, 
WMUA backing Keogh for the 
Senate, but then again, when you 
think about the definition of the 
political doctrine, Keoghism, 
long enough, it sort of figures. 

Slice the WMUA budget in 
half, then throw in a converter 
or two to make up for it, and 
what have yon? "Benevolent 
despotism" — Keoghism ! 

• * * * 

Restricted by the maximum of 



41 Senators as provided for in 
the Senate Constitution, the 
elections committee is reported 
to have left the decision as to 
the number of seats allocated in 
Hamlin and Knowlton completely 
up to chance. Each had two 
senators last year, but Hamlin 
has only one this year. Could it 
be that the election procedures, 
even the entire Senate Constitu- 
tion, would bear lookin' into? 

* * * * 

It seems to me, a pat on the 
back is due for Kevin Donovan 
'61, that up-and-coming Senator- 
at-large who made such a grand 
first appearance on the Senate 
floor last week. Senator Donovan 
looked sharp on the floor, calm, 
collected, and exhibited great 
control. 

Informed sources report it was 
he who laid the groundwork for 
organizing the student govern- 
ment talks last Thursday for 
freshmen. 

* * * * 

Another unsung hero, or 
rather heroine, of the Senate is 
the Senate's own Secretary. 
Someone ought to pitch in and 
give her a little help typing 
minutes and motions. Inciden- 
tally, she's pinned. 

* • * * 

Remember last year's silent 
six — the ones the honorable 
senator from Rutterfield stood 
up on his own two feet and at- 
tacked ? 

Well, these fern me de fatale 
are really not as silent as one 
might think. Here is a typical 
female conversation monitored 
in the Senate office at last week's 
Activities Committee meeting: 

Senator frtlM Thatcher: "Pow- 
er? Did we ever have it? Will we 
ever have it?" 

Secretary: "Power,, that's 
money. Sound* to me like wine- 
thing you can never get your

Are you going down to Wal- 
thaxn to see our Rednien play the 
Judges of Brandeia? I hope that 

you can make the game but if 
you are not so fortunate try to 
catch the game over WMUA at 
1:30 p.m. This weekend the 
WMUA ■portfl remote crew will 
journey down to Waltham in or- 
der tn pretest to the campus 
football enthusiast a play by play 
account of the game. 

Aie you interested in the 
events that affect you as a stu-

that you arc, then I would sug- 
jp st that you listen to the pre- 
miere performance of a new 
show over WMUA next Tuesday 
at 7:30 p.m. The show is entitled 
"Campus Commentary" and is 
prepared by the joint newsrooms 
of the Colli fiian and WMUA. 
Campus commentary will feature 
the kind of campus news that 
you want to hear, the kind of 
news that names names and 
spares no one. So if you want to 
know what is going on and who 
is doing it and where it is hap- 
pening then your best bet is to 
catch "Campus Commentary" on 
Tuesday nights at 7:30 p.m. This 
show will also feature selected 
interviews with the people who 
make the news.

EmtobVi N'otk: rail .'.>■ tin 

first in a sertfs of Weekly col- 
umns iliscussini/ jazz. 

I >".e of the most provocative 
instrumental groups to come onto 
the horizon in the last two year-; 
is that one which is called simply, 
"Shelley Manne and His Friends." 
The "friends" are Andre Previn 
on piano, and Leroy Vinnegar 
playing bass. 

The group, seldom appearing 
together except for recording ses- 
sions, has been collaborating since 
1956, when they put out their 
first album, an assortment of jazz 
tunes and ballads. 

Although it achieved great suc- 
cess, their second release, "My 
Pair Lady," proved to all that 
this new group was second to 
none in its area. 

Headed by impressionist Shel- 
ley Manne, the group became the 
number one trio across the nation 
and throughout most of the jazz- 
conscious world. Manne's impro- 
visation is unusual in its form as 
well as its spontaneous melodic 
and rhythmic elements, and his 
musical goal might be described 
as one of experimentation. Shel- 
ley endeavors to, and succeeds in, 
utilizing the various tonal qual- 
ities of his different drums to 
produce sounds equivalent to a 
brass or reed instrument. In 
achieving this, Manne follows a 
written score which is very sim- 
ilar to that designated for the 
other instruments of the group. 

Andre Previn is perhaps one 
of the most talked about young 
musicians of our time. Born in 



JAZZ 



Berlin, Germany, in April of 1929, 
he has written the scores for 
more than 27 films, and has three 
times been nominated for Acad- 
emy Awards. His style is light 
and carefree, and his ability to 
develop ■ melodic line is pro- 
found. Happiness seems to be 
spelled out musically every time 
I'revin sits down at the piano, 
whether he plays a ballad or a 
number that swings. The feeling 
which seems to integrate him 
with the rest of the group is only 
one of his many abilities as a 
jazz musician. He appears to have 
a genuine relationship with the 
keyboard, and his flare for coun- 
terpoint approaches greatn. 

Leroy Vinnegar is another story 
in the annals of jazz. Completely 
self-taught, this giant from Indi- 
anapolis handles a bass as an 
ordinary man might handle a 
violin. Entering the field of jazz 
in 1955, he has already become 
famous for his walking, funky, 
full-bodied sound. 

It is ironical that within the 
group one finds two men (Manne 
and Previn) so well educated mu- 
sically, playing along-side Vinne- 
gar, whose education (musical, 
that is) was acquired in bars and 
small jam sessions. This is the 
feature of the group that prob- 
ably makes them what they are: 
education and technology mixed 
with the right proportions of in- 
tuitive expression. 

In closing, this writer would 
recommend the group's recording 
of the tunas from Al Capp's "LiT 
Abner," featured on the Contem- 
porary label. , 



Dear Aunt Ruthie. . . 

Dear Aunt Ruthie, 

For the past few days, I've been drifting off to sleep evenings, 
listening to my favorite disc jockey of "Shoes Off Session" over 
WMUA. He is a dream ... I would like to get to meet him. 

But really, I do feel sorry for the poor guy too. Those awful, 
awful sneakers, all worn-out. I would like to buy him a new pair, but 
all I have is enough for a pair ot* shower shoes. 

Aunt Ruthie, would you help me? 

Sincerely, 
Vickie 

Dear Vickie, 

There is a fabulous sneaker aale at Sam's Sneaker Shop in Spring- 
field. As for meeting him— deliver the sneakers in person. 

Aunt Ruthie 

Dear Aunt Ruthie, 

I am a freshman girl and fairly popular with all classmen. There 
is one problem and that is that people think I am a snob because I 
supposedly keep my head too high. I don't think I do this. What should 
I do? 

D.E.B. 

Dear D.E.B. 

Try looking for nickels on the sidewalk. Also try giving everyone 
a friendly smile. 

Aunt Ruthie 

Dear Aunt Ruthie, 

I get very bored at times, and don't go out much, simply because 
I can't find THE girl. They're either too naive or too playgirliah, or 
just looks and no brains, or vice-versa. Anyway, even when I do find 
her, I sort of shy away. 

Got any suggestions? 

J.H. 

Dear J.H. 

College is just the place to find the type of girl you are looking 
for. With a new crop of freshmen coming in every year you should 
have no trouble meeting girls of all types. Talk to different girls In 
your classes, dances, football games, etc., and you will soon find THE 
one.

Nursing Notes 

by BETTY KARL 

Five students from Springfield 
were recently elected to serve on 
the Student Council of the School 
of Nursing. 

Elected by the clinical nurs- 
ing students to serve for the com- 
ing year Were Merike Mand, 
Joyce Dupuis and Martha Lepp, 
seniors, and Gail MacQuarrie and 
Catherine O'Connor, juniors. 

A new offspring of the Student 
Senate and the Woman's Judici- 
ary Committee, the Council has 
been set up to carry out the leg- 
islative functions of student gov- 
ernment for the nursing students 
during their absence from the 
University. 

Its five members, elected an- 
nually from among the Spring- 
field students, deal with minor 
infractions of a code of ethics 
set up by the Council; the Wom- 
en's Judiciary Committee acts on 
major violations. The Council 
sends an annual ' report to the 
latter organization and to the 
Committee on Recognized Stu- 
dent Organizations. 



Foreign Grants 
Ready Now 

John K. Zeender, Foreign Study 
Advisor, last week called the at- 
tention of seniors and graduate 
students to the competition of 
foreign grants to study abroad in 
1959-60. Competition is now open 
until November 1. 

The largest number of awards 
are the Fulbright grants which 
enable approximately one thous- 
and American grad students to 
study in Europe, Latin America, 
and in parts of Africa and Asia. 
There are also a substantial num- 
ber of foreign government 
awards. 

Applications and brochures 
about the various governmental 
grants may be obtained from 
Prof. Zeender in Old Chapel 4 
between 4 and 5 p.m. on Mondays 
and Thursdays and between 3 and 
4 p.m. Wednesdays. 

Although the competition is 
limited to seniors and grad stu- 
dents, all classes are invited.

sward called The Mall. The Mall, as we all know, was named in 
honor of our distinguished alumnus Fred Mall, inventor of the 
opposing thumb, Before Mr. fcfaH'i invention, the thumb could 
not he preyed or clicked against the other fingers. As a re&ult, 
millions of castanet makers were out of work. Today however, 
thanks to Mr. Mall, one out of every three Americans is gam- 
fully emploved making castanets. (The other two make croquet 
wickets.) Mr. Mall is now 106 years old and living in sedition 
on a sea cliff in Wellington, Kansas, but the old gentleman is 
far from idle. He Btffl works twelve hours a day in his laOora 
tory, and in the last year has invented the tuna, the cuticle, 
and lint.

For those of you who are 
wending your way to the doi 
between 4:00 and 6:80 nightly 
and happen to see some scantily 
clad men chasing each other past 
th.- Common*, as Sakini of The 
Teahouse would say. "A word of 
explanation, please." Th- 
young gentlemen are Coach Bill 
Footrick', Harriers; better 
known throughout New England 
as the Massachusetts Cross 
Country Team. 

This year's team, led by senior 
co-raptaina Pete Conway and 
Don Medara, is out to continue 
last fall's undefeated record. 

Returning lettermen from the 
1957 Cross Country Squad are: 
Pete Conway '59, Don Medara 
•59, Richard Atkinson '60, Jim 
Keelon '60, Don Bamford '59, 
and Joe Kelsey '59. The team i» 
bolstered by some of the out- 
standing members of last years 
freshman team. The four sopho- 
mores, Harold 'Emo' Barron, 
Ralph Flint, Ralph Bushmann,

The Harriers are building

,ag others in the vicinity. 
With the UMass hills and those 
nearby hills in Pelham, the 
Footrickmen should come out on 
top this Saturday as they travel 
to Boston to outdistance North-

This year the squad will face 
such threats as B.U., UConn, 
and Harvard which promises to 
be a close one.

A matter of deepening con- 
to University official! in re- 
year* has been the students 
apparent lack of interest in 
freshman sports. This apathetic 
attitude is certainly hard to 
understand, for very often the 
freshman teams provide more 
interesting and more colorful 
contests than their varsity 
counterparts. This is by no 
means implying that students 
should not go to varsity games, 
but merely attempts to bring out 
the fact that freshman sports 
,,,„ definitely furnish exciting, 
entertaining duels worth attend- 
ing. 

Frosh Sports Important 
Not only should sports en- 
thusiasts support the Frosh for 
their own personal enjoyment, 
but they should also realize the 
importance of good freshman 
sports and the consequences that 
may result from lack of atten- 
dance.

Now that the baseball season 
has ended, with Ted Williams 
winning his -sixth American 
League battinr: title ami EkMe 
Ashburn his second in the senior 
circuit, the Braves and Yankees 
are battling once again in the 
annual fall classic beginning this 
afternoon at County Stadium in 
Milwaukee. 

It doesn't look as if Casey and 
Company will be swatted down in 
the near future, but Fred 
Haney's club won't find it easy 
again. 

Branch Rickey spent several 
years in Pittsburgh building the 
kind of organization that made 
him famous with the Cardinals 
and Dodgers. This year it paid 
off as the Pirates rose to second 
place. 

A year ago very few baseball 
fans knew names like Cepeda, 
Alou, Kirkland. etc. This year 
they were on everybody's lips as 
Bill Rigney's kids pushed the 
transplanted Giants into third 
place. They were picked to finish 
no better than sixth in most 
polls last spring. 



Saturday Sidelights 

BU can't afford to lose ten 
fumbles this week. A home- 
coming crowd of more than 
thirtv-thousand is expected as 
the Terriers clash with mighty 
Navy in Boston. 

The Redmen scored two on the 
point after for the first time 
when Dick Hoss drove over after 
Jack Conway's 52-yard aerial to 
Bill Reynolds. 

The passing percentage took a 
beating last week as we com- 
pleted only 3 for 19. 

There were a lot of brave 
UMies who stuck it out through 
the monsoons. If it rains again 
on Homecoming, Warren Mc- 
Guirk will have plenty of attend- 
ance headaches. 

Brandeis is next as the youth- 
ful Redmen go after their initial 

victory. . 

Foxy Flumere, the Judges 
backfield coach told us that his 
line is brand new from tackle to 
tackle. Benny Friedman's clubs 
alwavs have a passer and this 
year its Lefty Bouchard. Ends 
Mike Long and Tom Girolamo 
are both experienced receivers, so 
the aerial lanes should be well 
filled at Gordon Field Saturday. 



Conference Clippings 



Speedy Halfback 




by DENNIS 

Saturday was a rough day for 
the Yankee Conference gridders. 
Maine was the only team able 
to pull out a win on a sloppy 

afternoon and that vai i W-d 

Vfctory against YanCon member 
Rhode Island.

eastern. 12-0. F<>r the 8<?cf,nd 
straight week. Fh.herty, a pre- 
season substitute quarterback,

Naturally it is obvious that 
the Freshmen produce next 
year's varsity aspirants. If it is 
for that reason alone they should 
be well supported. For nothing 
disheartens a player more than 
the sight of empty seats. All the 
confidence and vigor that is 
built up by a team during its 
many pre-season practices is 
completely shattered when it 
does not get encouragement 
from its school. I don't think it s 
necessary to have to explain how 
a team with no confidence will 
fare in competition. 

If this reason alone is not suf- 
ficient to attract spectators, 
surely the thought of seeing a 
good game is enough to allure 
any sportsman. 

Students Have Spirit 

It is evident that the studenta 
have the encouragement and 
spirit in mind, but in order to 
pass on this spirit to the players, 
they must come out to the 
games. There is 'no doubt that 
the student body of UMass has 
a3 much and more team spirit 
as any other University. There 
is a difference, however, between 
having spirit and showing it. 

It is hoped that this year stu- 
dents will show their feelings by 
giving the freshman teams all 
the encouragement that they so 
weU deserve. 



CROWLEY

on the parts of the officials, , 

which didn't help the Redmen.

Marston 
At 



by Bob Chiesa 

"Too few people are willing 
to take a chance," said Dean of 
Engineering, George A. Marston 
at a convocation of freshman 
engineers Wednesday. 

The Dean also posed two perti- 
nent questions— "What makes an 
engineer?," and "How does an 
engineer choose his prospective 

job?" 

Marston termed curiosity as a 
primary requisite for an engineer. 
"One must always be eagerly 
searching for the whys and 
wherefores of science," he said. 
This quality is usually inherent 
in all successful engineers. 

An intense interest in science 
in childhood often indicates a 
future interest in engineering. 



Speaks 
Convocation 

., _ _ 11 i.Lsn nf praduat 



From a poll taken of graduat- 
ing engineers, the dean revealed 
si If -improvement, the opportu- 
nity to learn more about one's 
chosen specialty, as the pre- 
dominant factor in job choosing. 
Geographical location also plays 
an important part in the selec- 
tion. 

In the question and answer 
period freshmen complained 
about the "tough" engineering 

course. « 

In answer, the dean charged 
that many high schools are now 
giving "smatterings" of advance 
mathematics instead of teaching 
only the fundamentals, hut 
teaching them well. Physics is 
the "heart" of engineering, the 
dean said.

Discussed By Senate 



Culprit Cops 
Cow's Calcium 

Special from the Springfield Union 

BELCHERTOWN— A mysteri- 
ous marauder with a soft touch 
has found a soft touch among 
the bovine element of this town. 

He apparently found a good 
thing and is milking it for all 

it's worth. 

The unidentified culprit has 
been striking night after night 
at the farm of Mrs. Godfrey 

Wenzel. 

Situation Well In Hand 
Such mass hijacking of milk 
on hoof is a new twist here, but 
the dairy phantom with a grade 
"A" taste seems to have the 
situation well in hand. 

In spite of the nighttime 
rigil set up on the herd, the 
perpetrator of this mass milking 
has yet to be caught. He has a 
way with bovine beauties, for 
during the purloining operation 
they do not become disturbed. In 
fact the clever thief seems to 
have stolen their hearts as well 
„ their milk for they seem bent 
on keeping their strange noc- 
turnal affairs secret. 

The situation is a complete 
and UDDER mystery- The thief 
must be a little squirt. 

An official working on the case, 
when asked what he thought was 
behind it all, replied with the 
understatement of the year. 1 
think," said he, "that someone is 
pulling a fast one." The official 
wishes to remain anonymous. 
Meantime, at the farm, the out- 
look is baleful as the critters 
lose milk by the pailful. 

At today's interview, when 
aaked, "How and Who," each cow 
gave the same answer— you 
guessed it— "Moo." 



SWIM & PISTOL TEAMS 

All students interested in 
trying out for the freshman 
and varsity swimming teams 
or upperclassmen interested in 
the varsity pistol team, please 
report to Coach Joe Rogers at 
the Pool any day between 4 
and 6 p.m. 



In a brief but heated session 
last Wednesday, the Student Sen- 
ate discussed the eighty per cent 
guarantee for the Concert As- 
sociation, a crosswalk on Route 
116, connecting the diagonal walk 
from Clark HaU to SU, and ab- 
sentee voting applications 



Dickinson 
Retires 

After 45 years as a teacher 
and advisor to thousands of 
students, Lawrence Dickinson 
has retired. He had been here at 
the University longer than any 
other staff member. 

Mr. Dickinson is recognized 
throughout the country as an au- 
thority on golf turf management 
and has lectured throughout the 
country on the subject. 

In 1927 he founded a ten week 
course for turf managers. Later 
he developed a two-year turf 
course in Stockbridge School 
which was one of two in the 
country. 

Earlier this year he was hon- 
ored by the Golf Course Super- 
intendents' Association of Amer- 
ica as the outstanding professor 
of agrostology in the country. 

He has handled the academic 
activities organization since 1915. 
This organization is now known 
as the RSO. . 

He is a member of Phi Sig- 
ma Kappa fraternity, Society of 
Agronomy, Pacific Lodge of Ma- 
sons, Amherst Royal Arch Chap- 
ter and New England Golf 
Course Superintendents' Associ- 
ation. . ,. 

He attended Mass. Agricultur- 
al College, Boston University and 
Mass. State College. 




Elections 
Contested 



by RICHARD MacLEOD '60 
Senate Reporter 

The Student Senate elections 
Wednesday night were hotly con- 
tested as 32 Senators were chosen 
from 91 candidates. Pro-tem 
President Dave Wilson '59 was 
elected on a snowball write-in 
vote, and is expected to be elect- 
ed President Wednesday. 

In all, the election committee 
completed seven mandatory re- 
counts. Senator Hal Lane 60, 
Chairman, emphasized that any 
candidate may petition for re- 
count by leaving a note in the 
election committee's box in the 
Senate office. 

The following Were the win- 
ners in the indicated constituen- 
cies, subject to Senate confirma- 
tion next Wednesday night.

The bill' to give the Concert 
Association a guaranteed appro- 
priation equal to eighty per cent 
of a present fiscal year's allot- 
ment for concert fees was passed 
unanimously after brief, but 
terse debate. A proposal to re- 
duce the guarantee to fifty per 
cent was rejected in favor of the 
eighty per cent guarantee. 

Senate Treasurer Winters, ad- 
vocating the eighty per cent 
guarantee, stated that such a 
guarantee would facilitate book- 
ing by putting the Concert As- 
sociation in a better bargaining 
position. He added that the guar- 
antee would prevent a repetition 
of the Pops episode, whereby the 
Boston Pops Concert was forced 
to be held at Amherst. 

Nick Constan '60, Manager of 
the Concert Association, stated 
that "As far as I am concerned, 
it will help to prevent a repeat 
of the Boston Pops incident." 
He extended his "commendations 
to Senator Zelis and the whole 
Senate." 

Zelis, commenting on the Sen- 
ate action, said, "I am glad the 
Concert Association got it (the 
eighty per cent guarantee ) We 
should have a better series next 
year because the Association will 
not be handicapped by a late 
budget." He added that "we will 
probably be able to get better 
prices since we will be able to 
bargain earlier for better dates. 



Over the past few years, the 
Concert Aaeociation haa spent an 
average of $12,000 a year for 
concert fees. This makes the 
eighty per cent guarantee 
amount to approximately $9,600 



AdelphiaSets 
Float Rules 

"If the whole school puts their 
all into the float parade and 
rally, they will give impetus to 
the team, and we'll beat Connec- 
ticut without any trouble, said 
Robert Myers, vice-president of 
Adelphia yesterday. 

Keynote Victory 
This traditional event which is 
sponsored by the Adelphia is 
scheduled for next Friday night, 
and is expected to keynote a 
victorious Homecoming weekend. 
Rules 
The following rules, set up by 
the University Health Council 
should be closely adhered to 
They will he strictly enforced 

this year. _ . 

j AH trailers or low -flat 
trucks not self-powered must be

Solve Problems 
Think! 

Did you know that it's Just as 
easy to think hard as not at all 7 

Lawrence Galton reports that 
no more energy is used in solv- 
ing difficult problems than in 

sleeping. 

Resesrchers at UPenn have 
concluded that most of the 
brain's energy is used just in 
"keeping the circuits open. 
Little additional effort is re- 
quired t.» use the circuits. 

You think more imaginatively 
lying down, hut more forcefully 
Ntanding. 

Subjects were tested In ef- 
ferent positions by Dr. Hugo 
Beigel of Long Island Univer- 
sity. He discovered that thinking 
in more complacent when lying 
tow*, mm energetic when 

standing up. 

For thoae who want the 
advantages of both kinds of 
thinking at once, sit do*n and 
compromise!

TODAY'S 



EDITORIALS 



SENATE PRESTIGE 

Unfortunately, the Senate seems to command 
very little respect on campus. The Collegian can only 
come to this conclusion judging from the compara- 
tively few nomination papers for senator. In four 
dorms and in the fraternity and sorority elections, 
there were either an equal or fewer amount of nom- 
ination papers than the number of available sena- 
torial positions. This lack of prestige is undeserved 
especially when we review the very creditable pro- 
digious legislation carried out by last year's body. 
Perhaps it's because the meetings are slow and often 
times draged out. This slowness is a natural result 
of any legislative body, where men have different 
opinions. The U.S. Senate is no more colorful nor 
any faster than our campus body. Let's give the 
Senate a break; it deserves it. 



SMART DIPLOMACY 

President Eisenhower's foreign policy (or lack of 
one) has justly come under frequent sharp criticism 
in the past few years. His recent concession to the 
Chinese Communists, however, deserves nothing but 
our warm praise. 

Unfortunately, the present administration inher- 
ited a "point of indefensible honor." This honor con- 
sists of a promise to support a military fortress ar- 
tificially created into a government which would 
crumble as soon as the United States withdrew its 
support. Moreover, this Nationalist Chinese Govern- 
ment, which the Truman administration felt so ne- 
OMSsry to support, is the same notoriously corrupt 
Chiang Kai Shek regime of the pre-revolution era. 
Is this the type of government that deserves our 
support? As Senator Green said, "Military involve- 
ment would be at the wrong time, the wrong place, 
on issues not of vital concern to our own security." 

The President's concession was good in that it 
may ease tension in the Far East without reneging 
on our promise to support nations against Commu- 
nist aggression. Briefly, it calls for a reduction of 
Nationalist troops in Quemoy and if the Reds stop 
th.'ir bombardment of the off-shore islands. This 
moderation could break the existing deadlock in ne- 
gotiations and give the world a little breather until 
the next explosion wherever it may be.

Dal 



by JUDY ABRAMS 

In April 1957 the University founded a student volun- 
teer group to visit Leeds Hospital, a mental institution for 
veterans. Because of the interest displayed by the students 
in this service project, the program was extended to include 
the Northampton State Hospital, and by February 1958, ap- 
proximately one hundred students were giving their time to 
the mentally ill. 

Originally the ward program consisted of playing cards 
or dancing with the patients. However, the program has 
since been altered to meet the needs of the students as well 
as those of the patients. More variety has been added to the 
patient's program by bringing in outside entertainment; 
now the programs are colored by folk and square dancing 
and music fro man accordian, uke or piano. For the fur- 
ther satisfaction of the students, an evaluation session fol- 
lows the ward program. Here, students meet with someone 
of authority and discuss questions which arise in the 
ward. Thus the student is now able to integrate his text 
book knowledge with the ward situation and is &ble to un- 
derstand the variety of actions which occur on the ward. 

Many students are afraid to visit the mentally ill, main- 
ly because they have heard stories about the grotesque sit- 
uations which are apt to occur. But this is a fallacy. The 
wards which our student volunteers visit are not composed 
of these actively "disturbed" patients — they do not rant and 
rave or tear off their clothes. Most of the patients are able 
to participate in activities and look forward to the students' 
visits. 

Think for a moment about how the community treats 
its mentally ill. It conveniently puts them in an institution 
and then just as conveniently forgets them. Few families 
acknowledge the fact that they have members in a mental 
institution — let alone visit them. That is why volunteers 
play such an important role in the life of the patient ; they 
give them something to look forward to during the week, 
for most of their day is spent sitting and looking into space. 
Thus volunteers are a small dose of the outside world — a 
group which can help the patients reintegrate themselves. 
Volunteers are not the cure, but they are a vital link from 
the community giving the forgotten patients something to 
live for. 

The volunteer groups have already resumed their visits 
from the University. Visits are made to Leeds on alternate 
Wednesdays (7:00-10:00 p.m.) and the group for North- 
ampton goes on alternate Thursday evenings from 6:00- 
9:00. Many more volunteers are needed. The orientation 
sessions for Leeds are on October 22 and October 29 — both 
must be attended for certification. The orientation for 
Northampton is this Tuesday, Oct. 7— the group will leave 
from Skinner parking lot at 6:00 p.m. Please sign up over 
the weekend in either your dorm or just outside the Hatch 
at the SU so adequate transportation will be provided. 

By working as a volunteer in these hospitals, you will 
enrich your college experience by helping those who need 
your help. 

Through A Glass, Darkly 

by IAN MeLURE 

To those who regard scientists as dry, humorless folk, 
it may come as a surprise to find that there are myths in sci- 
entific lore. These tales concern the doings and pronuncia- 
mentos of a culture hero, the redoubtable Dr. Finagle, 
(sometimes Von Nagel). This epic figure is responsible for 
many of the great advances in science, and all science is 
eternally indebted to him for his explanations of the many 
great failures. 

Dr. Finagle is best remembered as the author of 
Finagle's Variable Constant. This can be defined as that 
number which added to, subtracted from, multiplied by, or 
divided into the wrong answer, gives the right answer. It 
is especially useful in engineering, and many mechanical 
analogues to it have been designed. The most familiar is 
the little screw in the bathroom scale, which can be adjusted 
to make one's weight whatever one pleases. 

The good doctor's early history is obscure. It is thought 
that he was born of German-Irish stock in the late 1890's, 
and took his degree in Metaphysics at Miskatonic in the 
early 1900's. His rise to fame occurred at the International 
Congress of Savants and Dilettantes at Timbuktu in 1923, 
where he formulated his three famous Laws, to wit: 

1. If anything ran go wrong, it uiU. 

2. Left to themselves, things always go from bad to 

\U»I 

3. Nature always sidps with the hidden flaw. 

This was immediately recognized as a vast contribu- 



To the Editor: 

The problem of integration in the public 
schools throughout the south, in short, the 
whole Negro question is the most enigmati- 
cal one our country has ever had to face. 

I think I am not capable of drawing the 
line here, but instead would like simply to 
bring this pressing problem into clear focus. 

To find the real root of the Negro ques- 
tion, one must revert back to our ancestors. 
It was the selfishness and shortsightedness 
of these southern plantation owners who 
have have passed on to us a situation so de- 
manding in its moral entailments, that it 
has ceased to be only a domestic affair. The 
whole world is now looking at America and 
awaiting our course of action. If America 
does not act firmly and promptly, the ques- 
tion will be answered by the peoples of the 
world. America is not really the great de- 
mocracy she claims to be. The equalitarian 
spirit exists only in theory, not in practice. 
Theory and practice are two distinct sep- 
arate lofty ideals'. Democracy is a failure. 

I think that maybe the Negroes should 
not assert their rights so persistently It has 
appeared that the resulting tensions and 
frustrations brought on by court orders, 
and armed forces have led to new periods of 
cacophony. 

Granted that human nature must and can 
be changed, the process of integration has 
been glacially slow. Immediate integration 
in the South is so dim as to appear invisible. 
However, it is a far-off but progressing 
event. It is better for the Negroes to be dis- 
couraged against hopes of improving their 
material lot or their social status? Whenever 
gross disparities in privilege and opportunity 
exist or seem to exist, and no lawful orderly 
means are provided for securing change, 
those who are discriminated against, resort 
to violence. 

The Supreme Court exists to preserve the 
security of all, to promote the general wel- 
fare, and to administer under law the com- 
mon interests of all America**, But here, I 
do not think that by employing "human law" 
we can change the vituperations and injus- 
tices we have all witnesed to some degree, 
against the Negro. This will inevitably re- 
quire an evolutionary grinding out of "moral 
law." When the dignity and the worth of the 
individual are at stake, there can be little 
doubt as to "right" or "wrong."

tion to scientific thought, and corroborative 
evidence poured in from every laboratory in 
the world. Emboldened by success, Finagle, 
10 years later, pronounced his famous Dic- 
tum: 

"Nature abhors an experimenter." 
His later work, though profound, fell 
short of the brilliance of his early contribu- 
tions. Some attribute this to Finagle's failure 
to specialize. It is true that he ranged over 
the whole field of the natural and the human- 
istic sciences, as the following sample of his 
aphorisms attests: 

Pyschology: "In an experiment, an ani- 
mal will do what it damn well pleases." 

Sociology: "If there is more than one pos- 
sible course of action, the least intelligent 
will be chosen." 

Physics: "In any apparatus, failure oc- 
curs in the most inaccessible component." 

Pedagogy: "No demonstration experi- 
ment A'orks." 

Statistics: "No matter what happens, 
someone knew it would." 

Dr. Finagle is, alas, no longer with us, 
hut his great work is being carried on by 
hundreds and thousands of researchers all 
over the world.

O.K., O.K., so I won't use the and relijfion 
picture anymore! 

Until that picture was printed, 
I was very content in my closet. 
No one bothered me; I just 
wandered merrily from classes 
to fraternity house to Student 
Union, not bothering anybody. 

Then it started — the day after 
that picture was printed. People 
began to laugh and point and 
ask funny questions, little kids 
picked up their hula-hoops and 
ran away screaming; dogs at- 
tacked me; young, suburban- 
type mothers began to throw 
rocks at me ... It was great ! A 
sensational new feeling — people 
were noticing me! 

But "the powers that be" 
looked at the picture and said, 
"Hoo-Haa! This is not worthy of 
pictorial journalism." 

So, here we go again . . .

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, FRIDAY. OCTOBER 3. 1958 



Varrichione To Play 



CONFIDENT REDMEN 
SET TO JAR JUDGES 




by DICK BRESCIANI 

A spirited and confident Red- 
men eleven will take the field at 
1:30 tomorrow afternoon when 
our warriors tangle with Bran- 
deis University at Gordon Field 
in Waltham. 

Despite dropping their first 
two games to Maine and BU, the 
Redmen fee! they are ready to 
hit the victory trail. The sophs 
have gained much of the needed 
game experience that should 
help to mold them in with the 
veterans on the team. 

Weak Line 

During the BU encounter, 
coach O'Rourke used a platoon 
system quite effectively. Bran- 
deis can expect much of the 
same tomorrow. The Judges are 
reportedly weak in the line and 
on pass defense. Therefore, the 
bull-like charges of Buzz Rich- 
ardson and Tom Delnickas and 
the passing of Bill Maxwell and 
Jack Conway should raise havoc 
all afternoon. 

Brandeis was clobbered, 26-2, 
by Colby in the rain last week. 



The game proved costly because 
Lefty Bouchard, the Judges' top 
quarterback, was injured and 
will be out of action this week. 

However, Benny Friedman's 
eleven still has a pair of top- 
notch ends in Mike Long and 
Tom Girolamo and a speedy 
backfield. 

Varrichione Ready 

The Redmen will probably 
start the same club that opened 
against BU, with the addition of 
Lou Varrichione, who missed 
last week's game because of a 
bruised hip. But Lou is ready to 
go again, and will take the field 
tomorrow in his customary left 
guard position. 

The Redmen haven't beaten 
Brandeis since 1953, losing by 
one-sided margins the past two 
seasons. But tomorrow should be 
a different story. 

A convincing win over the 
Judges will bolster the morale 
and spirit, of the Redmen and 
will put them in the right frame 
of mind for the big Yankee Con- 
ference Homecoming clash with 
the UConn Huskies next week. 



Harriers, 
Booters 
See Action 

Coach Larry Briggs' varsity 
soccer squad will provide the 
only sports attraction on campus 
tomorrow, when they play host 
to Worcester Polytechnic Insti- 
tute at 2:30. 

Captain Bernie Goclowski will 
lead the team after its second 
straight win of the year. The 
booters tipped Coast Guard, 1-0, 
in the rain and mud at New Lon- 
don, Conn, last Saturday. 

Meanwhile, the Redmen var- 
sity and freshmen cross country 
squads will compete in their first 
dual meets of the season, tomor- 
row afternoon by travelling to 
Boston to meet corresponding 
squads from Northeastern Uni- 
versity. 



Series Sportlight 



The Milwaukee Braves are 
making their followers mighty 
happy by jumping off to a quick 
two game lead in the World 
Series over the New York 
Yankees. 

With roomies Warren Spahn 
and Lew Burdette hurling fine 
ball and Billy Bruton providing 
■onto timely hitting, the Braves 
are now odd*-on favorities to 
cop the aerieat 

Good Seat 

One fan really got himself a 
good seat. He climbed to the top 
of one of the 135' light towers in 
center field. When the game was 
over, it took an aerial ladder 
truck to get him down. Incident- 
ally, he was from Brooklyn, 
where else? 

Milwaukee is such a partisan 
town that even the theatre mar- 



quee which formerly said "Damn 
Yankees" was changed to read 
"Beat The Damn Yankees." 

Mickey Mantle was showing a 
light beard before the opener 
and vowed that he wasn't going 
to shave until he was blanked 
in one of the games. "In fact, 
he confidently said, "I may not 
have to shave until spring train- 
ing." Mrs. Mantle won't have to 
worry though, because Spahn 
handcuffed him. Mickey was 
close shaven for the second 
game and promptly broke his 
brief slump, by slamming two 
homers over the centerfield 
fence. 

Mantle now has hit 11 homers 
in World Series play, which 
places him second to only Babe 
Ruth, the game's greatest home 



run slugger. Ruth hit 15 circuit 
clouts in fall competition. 

Coincidence 

It may be just a coincidence, 
but the Yankees of 1955 and the 
then Brooklyn Dodgers of 1956 
each won the first two contests 
of the series only to lose out in 
seven games. So don't count the 
Yanks out yet.

Ferguson, a veteran trumpet 
of the Jimmy Dorsey, Charlie

of favorable attention through- 
out the world of jazz with his 
12-piece orchestra.

Peewee Russell is a living ex-

"The American public high 
school can be made satisfactory 
without any drastic change in its 
basic pattern," stated James B. 
Conant, former president of 
Harvard to a large audience of 
Massachusetts educators in the 
Cage Saturday. 

Conant, who recently made a 
survey of high school education 
throughout the U.S. presented 
his conclusions and suggestions 
with his topic, "The Compre- 
hensive High School in America." 

This school was defined as one 
whose program was geared to the 
needs of the community and the 
talents of the individuals. 

Consolidation Necessary 

Because of the demands on 
such a school in terms of facili- 
ties and staff, it would have to 
be large enough to offer the ne- 
cessary diversity of program. 

Consolidation is the answer ac- 
cording to Conant, who felt that 
high schools with graduating 
classes of less than 100 can not 
do an adequate job. 

In Massachusetts, this would 
mean reducing about 23,000 high 
schools to about 9,000 by people 
at the state level. 

Curriculum 

Curriculum as Conant saw it 
should have three major divis- 
ions: a program of required 
courses for all ; vocational and 
trade electives; and a course of 



study for the academically able, 
a group defined by Conant as 
those ranking in the upper 15% 
on standard tests. 

To help students plan their in- 
dividual curriculum a corps of 
guidance counselors in an ap- 
proximate ratio of 1 per 100 stu- 
dents was recommended by Co- 
nant. 

Incentive and Reward 

Conant urged that diplomas 
include a list of courses with 
grades; that honors lists for the 
term be publicized, and that rank 
in class be de-emphasized as stu- 
dents sometimes sign up for 
easier courses to get better 
grades. 

The only exception Conant 
made in his suggestion that stu- 
dents be grouped by ability — 
was in the case of senior year 
social studies, where everyone 
would benefit more by being in 
an heterogeneous group. 

Conant thinks that the answers 

9 today's problems in education 

must be solved at the community 

level and not through massive 

Federal aid. 

Individual Systems 

After surveying educational 
systems throughout the country, 
Conant holds that each system is 
individual and must be treated 
as such. 

The formal results of his sur- 
vey of U.S. high School education 
will be available in February. 



need Quarterly Needs 
New Name ten bucks? 



Announcing the Quarterly's 
quest for a new name, William 
Lee '60, Editor-in-chief, stated 
late last night that a $10 first 
prize would be offered in a con- 
test open to all undergraduates 
at the University. 

"Students may submit as many 
names as they want," Lee said, 
"but the name itself must con- 
tain only one word, and be sub- 
mitted not later than October 
16." 

Kntries may either be mailed 
or delivered in person to the 
Quarterly'* office, located in the 
Collegian suite on the second 
floor of the SU. 

Announces Art Contest 

Lee added that "students are 
also eligible to participate in an 
outdoor art contest, the winner 



Deadline For First I»sue 

to see his painting as the front 
page cover for the first issue of 
our new literary magazitu ." 

October 30 is the deadline for 
the art contest, as well as forth*' 
submission of all manuscripts: 
short stories, essays and poi-try. 

"However, all maniiMcripts 
submitted must be typed and 
double spaced," Lee pointed out, 
"and all must show that high 
caliber of quality we expect to 
initiate in this year's new, re- 
modeled magazine." 

Besides the Editor-in-chief, 
judges in both contests are 
Rob«rt 0, Prentiss '60, Associate 
Editor, and the four members of 
the literary staff: Susan Gold- 
stein T»o, Carmen Rezendes '60, 
Howard Tripp '60. and James 
Watson '59.

by TED RAYMOND '59 

Waltham, Oct. 4— Rolling up a 24-0 lead in the first 
period, a hustling UMass grid squad gained some measure 
of revenge and exhibited some of their offensive potential 
as they crushed Brandeis, 36-14, before a slim crowd of 
2500 fans today at Waltham. 

Junior halfback Bill Reynolds set the pace as he crossed 
the goal line three times for the Redmen. The fleet junior 
was impressive as he reeled off dazzling romps of 55 and 60 
yards for two of his three scores. 

REDMEN OPEN UP 

UMass tallied their first six-pointer at seven minutes 
of the opening stanza when Gerry Walls bucked over from 
the one yard line and then crossed again in the same spot 
to add two extra points. 

The touchdown was set up by a spectacular pass from 
Bill Maxwell to Buzz Richardson that covered 21 yards. On 
third down with eight yards to go from the Brandeis 25, 
Maxwell faded to throw and was chased from behind. He 
got the ball off as he was hit, almost on his knees, and 
Richardson cut across the field, gathered it in on the 15 
and pounded down to the 4 yard line. Walls carried twice to 
push the pigskin across for the score. 

Two minutes later the Redmen added another tally 
set up by Jim Hickman's nifty 50 yard punt return. 

He took Giralamo's kick on the Mass 34 and took off 
down the left sideline, broke into the clear on the Brandeis 
45, and looked like he was going all the way but Giralamo 
put on a great effort and hauled him down from behind on 
the 24.

Value Of A Diploma 

President Mather's carefully planned em- 
pha>i I n football— so that a dynamic and 
rapidly changing university can balance 
sports with curriculum — was finally re- 
warded with Saturday's victory over Bran- 

deis. 

A balance between sports and curriculum 
is important to a growing university. But 
could prestige possibly be more important? 
Perhaps the publicly acknowledged purchase 
of a football team may Increaae the prestige 
of this University. Perhaps this will not tend 
to devaluate a diploma from the University 
of Massachusets. Perhaps it is really neces- 
sary to over-emphasize football in order to 
give it sufficient weight in the "balance." 

Saturday's game is credited as being the 
kick-off of a new era in UMass football his- 
tory. For a university that has seen the evo- 
lution of several eras to date, this is impor- 
tant. From "Massachusetts Agricultural Col- 
lege" to "Mass. State," to "University of 
Massachusetts;" Now, to "Massachusetts 
Football Farm?" 

Most students are here for the purpose of 
earning a diploma; a diploma that will sig- 
nify an educated person to people every- 
where. Most students here acknowledge a 
desire to see a winning team; but at what 
cost to themselves as students'! 



Deserved Recognition 




Editor's Mailbox 



To the Editor: 

The letter hy Richard MacLeod 
of '60 castigating your J. A.M. 
editorial as being erroneous in 
facts, was itself seriously at fault 
for that reason. 

The Nationalist Chinese have 
not been raiding the Mainland 
from Quemoy and Matsu. Per- 
haps they would have, were U.S. 
Forres nnt present at Taiwan. 
Chang-Kai-Shek has by contract 
been held to defensive action en- 
tirely. Furthermore, raids on the 
armed area around Quemoy and 
Matsu would be extremely fool- 
hardy. 

On the other hand, the Com- 
munists loudly assert their intent 
to expand their holdings, first to 
Quemoy and Matsu, secondly to 
Formosa. Successful in that ven- 
ture I believe they would follow 
the pattern of the belligerent 
Japanese in setting up a Greater 
East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere. 
Sooner or later we would be in- 
volved. 

Mr. MacLeod doesn't want war. 
Can he find any American who 
does? The University Seminar 
agrees that Quemoy and Matsu 
are more reasonably akin to the 
mainland than Taiwan (just as 
Cypress is more reasonably Turk-

ish than Greek in locale). Why 
then does our State Department 
not wash its hands of the whole 
matter? For the same reason, 
gentlemen, that we have drawn a 
line against Communist en- 
croachment in Greece, in Korea, 
and in Berlin. The central aim of 
our National Security Policy (of 
which the National Military pro- 
gram is one part) is deterrence 
of Communist expansion in 
whatever form it may take. To 
give ground to armed aggression 
|l like allowing a small amount 
of inflation or getting a little bit 
pregnant. It can't be easily con- 
trolled. A line must be drawn be- 
fore the event. 

I hope with Mr. MacLeod that 
for the peace of the world the 
Communists will have the intelli- 
gence to stop their present cam- 
paign as our determination be- 
comes clear, and that Chang-Kai- 
Shek can be pursuaded to volun- 
tarily release the 'Oft* Shore' is- 
lands in return for guarantees. 

To say that this is an internal 
matter among Chinese and imply 
that we CAN stand clear is wish- 
ful thinking of the worst order.

Dance Jubilee — A Review 

by PAUL BUTLER 



Under adverse conditions of 
staging, acoustics, and poor au- 
dience seating, the Dance Jubilee 
moved from a slipshod start to a 
finale more in keeping with the 
reputation of its leading man, 
Rod Alexander. Between these 
two extremes there was more 
than a fair share of drudgery. 

The opening number, Minstrel 
Days, was characterized by poor 
timing but was saved from com- 
plete failure by the appearance 
of Bambi Linn and Mr. Alexan- 
der in the Cakewalk. Between 
numbers, narration by Melville 
Burke added absolutely nothing 
to the show. Mr. Burke's stumb- 
ling commentary and abortive at- 
tempts at humor rather than to 
warm the audience seemed to 
alienate it. 

There were, however, numbers 
in the show that lived up to ex- 
pectations. An excellent satire on 
operetta, the Folk Suite, and the 
Rock and Roll number with its 
rather intricate choreography, 
were among these. 

Explanations for the program 
changes in Thursday night's per- 
formance were given by both Mr. 



Doric Alviani and Mr. Rod Alex- 
ander. Any show on the road for 
the first week, as this one is, 
must expect some alterations. 
However, the Concert Association 
should have been notified of the 
planned changes. Other cuts be- 
cause of stage facilities were, 
perhaps, unforeseeable. 

Other unforeseeable factors de- 
tracted from the show's total ef- 
fect. While costumes were excel- 
lent, the lack of setting in which 
to exhibit them produced incon- 
gruity. The program changes ne- 
cessitated some shifting of per- 
formers in various numbers giv- 
ing an unrehearsed impression. 
The female Dancers, for example, 
made a practice of singing inde- 
pendently when the number called 
for a gToup effort. I would char- 
itably attribute this to the per- 
sonell shifting mentioned while it 
well might have been pure lack of 
rehearsal. 

Some of the faults with this 
show are ordinary enough for a 
recently opened production. Oth- 
ers should never have been ob- 
served in a show headed by pro- 
fessionals the caliber of Miss Linn 
and Mr. Alexander. 




by LARRY RAYNER '61 
and RICHARD MacLEOD '60 

"A micro-biologist's heaven," is the phrase used 
by Dr. Ralph L. France in describing the great va- 
riety of diseases existing in Pakistan. "Almost eveiy 
conceivable disease is present." 

Dr. FYance, head of the bacteriology and public 
health department here returned to the university 
this semester after spending two years in Pakistan. 

Under contract with the Massachusetts depart- 
ment of Public Health, Dr. France had planned to 
teach pre-clinical science on the post-graduate level. 
Instead, he found himself planning, organizing, and 
equipping a national medical center (the Dow Med- 
ical Center) in Karachi. This left little time for 
teaching. 

Dr. France found that the teaching in Pakistan 
is "on a very basic level." It is difficult to teach since 
all education is based on memorization. Studying 
is done only to pass exams; and the students don't 
learn to apply what they are taught. 

He found that some educators were very cooper- 
ative and realized that their system of education 
needed vast improvement, while others denied that 
anything was missing in it. 

There are no student-professor relationships in 
Pakistan. The sfudent comes to class, takes notes on 
the lecture, and memorizes the notes for the examin- 
ations. There are no question or discussion periods. 
Dr. France added that there is no professional inter- 
course among the professors, or research of any 
kind. 

"Exams are given at the end of first, third, 
fourth, and fifth years by an outside board of ex- 
aminers." This means that the professor does not 
determine the final grade. 

The object of the student over there isn't to study 
medicine. It is to pass exams, obtain a degree and 
practice medicine. Very few students turn to teach- 
ing because of low pay. Those who do go into teach- 
ing usually engage in practice of medicine on the 
side. 

Dr. France "learned patience from the Asians." 
"They can't be pressured into anything, and move 
at a slow and deliberate speed at all times." 

The health and sanitation program is most 
important to Pakistan. A- tremendous amount of 
work is necessary to bring their sanitation up to 
the western level. 

Dr. France termed his stay in Pakistan as "A 
rich experience ... as they are very friendly . . . 
intelligent . . . and sensitive people." 



An Obligation To Tomorrow 

Editor's Note: Thin is the seventh installment of an article by 
I>r. AU'irt S.lnnitzcr reprinted from the SATURDAY Review. 

Rockets of an average range may be used for defense purposes 
by Turkey and Iran against the Soviet Union. They could penetrate 
flttpty into its country with arms accepted from America. 

The Soviet LTnion is countering those measures. Both America 
and the Soviet Union may now seek alliances with the Middle East 
by offering those countries various kinds of financial support. There- 
fore, events in the Middle East could endanger the peace of the world. 

The danger of an atomic war is being increased by the fact that 
no warning would be given in starting such a war. Indeed, it could 
erupt merely on the basis of some incident. Thus, the time factor 
rater*— the side that attacks first would have the initial advantage 
over the attacked. At the very start, the attacked would find himself 
sustaining losses which would reduce his fighting capacity consider- 
ably. 

As a result, one has to be on the alert all the time. This factor 
constitutes an extreme danger in the event of a sudden outbreak of an 
atomic war. When one has to act with such speed, he has to reckon 
with the possibility that an error may occur on what is registered on 
the radar screen, and that this could result in the outbreak of an 
atomic war. 



What Is A Coed? 

A coed is a sophisticated young woman whom 
you sent off to the university. A young lady who 
had been dating since 13, smoking since 14, and go- 
ing steady with three different men (at the same 
time) since 15. She sported a blond cowlick and 
blazed bangs, not to mention a silver cigarette holder 
and a vocabulary consisting of a liberal sprinkling 
of four letter words. Seldom had you seen her in 
the past year when she wasn't wearing false eye- 
lashes and a completely made-up face. On the few 
occasions that you did see her she managed to hit 
you for at least five dollars. 

When she bade you good-bye at the station you 
had the feeling that sha was glatl to get you out of 
her hair. You realized that the only times she'd 
write home would be when she wanted more money. 

A coed is the girl who cut the first class of her 
college career. As her first weekend on campus ap- 
proached she suddenly sprouted pincurlers, facials, 
manicures, and a southern drawl. 

A coed is the girl who for some unknown reason 
suddenly refuses several requests for dates with the 
previously unheard-of excuse that she "has to study." 
Almost with equal surprise she announces one day 
that she is "giving up smoking and using make-up 
on the absurd grounds that she can't afford it." 

Everyone realizes that she has made a complete 
about-face when they notice (although they refuse 
to believe it at first) that she not only has stopped 
cutting classes, but she has been seeing her profes- 
sors after class about things that weren't perfectly 
clear to her. 

You are taken abar-k and begin to wonder about 
her health when you receive two letters in one week, 
neither of which even mentions money. 

You wonder if this can possibly be the same girl 
you sent off to college when she comes home at the 
end of the semester and proudly announces with a 
smile on her shiny face, "oh, daddy, I made the 
Dean's list."

The Campus Beat 



by ALAN LUPO '39 

1 am walking leisurely to the orial Hall 
Engineering Building for an 
ROTC class (where else could 
you possibly have a class in Mil- 
itary Administration'') and as I 
am passing by the Draper Hall 
basement, a young gentleman in 
a green eyeshade staggers up the 
cold stone stairs and gasps for 
breath. 

By his ragged appearance, his 
double-breasted sharkskin suit 
and the dust on his six-day 
growth, I can see immediately 
that this poor soul is an account- 
ing major. 

Accounting majors are like 
chemistry majors, except instead 
of slaving over boiling test tubes, 
they slave over green ledgers. 
Finally after four years of green 
eyeshades, green ledgers, and 
green debits and credits, they 
go out into the world and make 
all kinds of green money. 

Before you could say "the 
marginal propensity to consume 
is inversely proportional to the 
ratio of the marginal density to 
expand", or whatever they say 
in Draper, this gentleman grabs 
me by my Morgan Memorial 
shirt and says with a fevered 
look in his eye, "You think you 
are a real big man, don't you, 
huh! Well, I don't care; I 
couldn't care less. There's only 
one thing I care about, and it's 
not this damn eyeshade either 
(ripping his visor in little pieces 
and throwing them to the wind) ! 
All I care about is the Senior 
Class meeeting this Thursday 
at 11 a.m. in the SU Common- 
wealth Room at which time we 
shall take up the following: Sen- 
ior Commencement Activities; 
Senior Mixes; Class Insurance; 
Alumni Tax; and Class Advisor."

"It is supposed, but unproved, 
that four colors will always suf-

It's Greek 

by MIKF KLEINKKM AN 

With Homecoming Week End 
just a few days away, the fra- 
ternities are busily preparing to 
welcome their alumni back to the 
University. 

Not only do the UMass gradu- 
ates return to see the progress of 
the school, the traditional game, 
and the campus in general, but 
also to visit with the brothers of 
their respective fraternities. 

Needless to say, they meet 
many of their old acquaintances, 
in addition to the new members 
of the various houses. 

The week end officially begins 
with the "float parade," sched- 
uled for this Friday night. Their 
plans already submitted, the fra- 
ternities are now in the process 
of ironing out construction de- 
tails of the floats. Taking one of 
the three places in this colorful 
event not only results in the win- 
ning of trophies and IFC points, 
but also in impressing the home- 
coming brothers. 

After the parade, many of the 
houses are holding parties. The 
main function of these gather- 
ings will be the acquainting of 
the alumni with the undergradu- 
ates. 

Saturday afternoon everyone 




will be looking f<>r an upset vic- 
tory over UConn. If the Redmen 
display the same spirit they 
showed in Storrs last year, such 
an outcome would be more than 
likely. 

The week end will culminate 
in the evening with the fraterni- 
ty parties. Several houses have 
hired small bands or jazz com- 
bos to entertain their guests. Of 
course many hours of planning 
are being spent by the fraternity 
men of this campus in order to 
make the forthcoming week end 
a success. In short, they are 
putting the "house" into "home- 
coming." 

(Ed. note: All Greek news is 
found on page 3, whether it be 
IFC, Pan-Hel, or the news from 
each house. Watch for features 
on all the UMass fraternities 
and sororities in the near fu- 
ture!)

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, MONDAY, OCTOBER 6. 1958 



UMass Wins, 36-14 

(Continued from page 1) 

The Redmen went \> yards in two tries and then Jack Conway pitched to Armand Sabourin who 
had outdistanced the safety man and was waiting all alone in the end zone for the second UMass TD. 
8abourm bucked over for two more and the Redmen led, 16-0. 

Another Conway aerial with a mlnuU to go in the first quarter notched another TD for VMmu 
with Bill Reynolds on the receiving end for his firs t score. 

After the Redmen had held the Judges on their first series following Sabourin's score, Giralamo 
punted and Hickman was

dropped without a runback on 
the Mass 45. A five yard penalty 
moved UMass back to their own 
40 where Conway threw to Rey- 
nolds in the flat and Billy 
moved out down the right side. 
He shook off one tackier at mid- 
field, picked up a sensational 
block from John Burgess at the 
Brandeis 30, and waltzed into 
the promised land solo. Dick 
Hoas banged over for the con- 
version and the Redmen led, 24-0, 
when the team* changed ends. 
Judges Take To Air 
On their next try, Brandeis 
strung together U passes and a 
rollout run to get on the score- 
board. 

Mick Walker, second string 
Brandeis quarterback who was at 
the helm of the Judges in the ab- 
sence of Lefty Bouchard, spear- 
headed the drive. 

Walker heaved three times to 
Long and once to Weare and 
dashed 15 yards on a rollout op- 
tion as the Judges moved from 
their own 23 into the end zone in 
•even plays. 

UMass Controls Ball 
The Brandeis score aroused the 
Redmen and they kept control of 
the ball throughout the remain- 
der of the first half, allowing the 
Judges to run only six plays be- 
fore intermission. 

Before the whistle blew though 
the Redmen added another touch- 
down. They moved from their 
own 15 on a sustained drive cli- 
maxed by Reynolds sweep from 
the one yard line for his second 
score. 

UMass stayed on the ground 
in tins long push with Hickman 
•nd Reynolds carrying the brunt 
of the attack. A Maxwell to Sa- 
bourin aerial good for 12 yards 
and two Hoss bucks of 10 and 5 
yards interspersed the alternat- 
ing plunges of Hickman and Rey- 
nolds as the Redmen reeled off 
four first downs and used up 
16 downs in their march to pay- 
dirt. 

The halftime gun interrupted 
the next series of Brandeis downs 
and the scoreboard read UMass 
SO. Brsndeis 6. 

Judges Fight Back 
Brandeis opened up the second 
half with a surge to try and get 
back in the ball pawns. Walker 
clicked with Long on a to yard 
pass play to set up the score and 
enuck over for the ecore from 
the Maes one yard line. Walker's 
pitchout to I>ougherty as he was 
being tackled on a quarterback 
option was a key play as it 
brought the ball from the UMass 
16 down to the 2 on fourth down. 
Walker added two points on an- 
other rollout keeper play and the 
Redmen led, 30-14. 

Reynolds Romps 
Bill Reynolds added hi* third 
touchdoum to finish the after- 
noons scoring shortly after the 
Judges TlK 

After UMass had lost the ball 
on a fumble, Walker passed deep 
to Long but Reynolds, covering 
him like a blanket, stole the ball 
when they both went ut> for it 
and came down running. He 
pulled in thfl pass on the Mass 40

didn't have to fight off a single

The Redmen were content to

Gerry Walls halted one Bran-

Boston, Oct. 4 — Saturday was 
a bonus day all around for the 
varsity teams as the varsity 
Cross Country Team started off 
its winning season by beating all 
competitors in a quadrangular 
meet at Franklin Field here to- 
day. 

UMass scored 39 points to win 
over the closest competitor U- 
Maine with 42. Springfield Col- 
lege was third with 46 points and 
the host, Northeastern, was last 
with 104 points. 

Finishing third and fourth for 
UMass were Dick Atkinson and 
Co-captain Pete Conway. They 
covered the 4.2 mile course in 21 
minutes and 21:18 respectively. 
Also scoring for UMass were, in 
seventh place Ralph Bushmann, 
tenth Don Medera, and fifteenth, 
Emo Barron. 



Coach Footrick commented that 
he has a well balanced team. A 

team that can score five men in 
a gi - oup in less than a minute 
is a sure chance for a win. Such 
is the case with the Harriers as 
was evidenced Saturday. Maine 
had its five scorers separated by 
at least two minutes.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



WEDNESDAY. OCTOBER 8. 1958 



FRENCH BARON 

FACES FACTS 

Baron De Pampelonne, French Consul General in Boston, ad- 
dressed the Romance Language Department last night presenting per- 
tinent facts about France and his own personal faith in his country. 

De Pampelonne dealt mainly with the Algerian problem. As he 
outlined it, the struggle in Algeria is not the people's struggle, Mos- 
lem loyalty and confidence in France has been manifested at the polls. 
According to De Pampelonne and his colleagues the rebellion does not 
represent the population any 

Mortar Board 
Raises Rates 



more than Al Capone represents 
Chicago, and their leaders are 
not by any means George Wash- 
ingtons or Thomas Jeffersons. 

De Pampelonne is a staunch 
advocate of De Gaulle in regard 
to these matters. He describes 
the general as a brain and a 
conscience. 

The discussion also considered 
the prospect of a European Com- 
munity. It is the consuls opinion 
that the U.S. has nothing to fear 

from a unified Europe. He also 
justified France's policies and 
actions in connection with her 
NATO obligations. 

De Pampelonne asserts a 
strong confidence in France's 
ability to meet the tasks in front 
of her. The Consul was an aide- 
de-camp to Gen. De Gaulle and 
has seen extensive military serv- 
ice during World War II in 
Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia. 



Mortar Board voted last night 
to raise its minimum scholastic 
requirement from 2.1 to 2.6. This 
change will be effective as of this 
year. 

Susan Harrington '59, Presi- 
dent of Mortar Board, said the 
senior women's honorary associa- 
tion also recommended that the 
average be further raised on a 
graduated scale in future years. 

Mortar Board judges its candi- 
dates on three criteria - scholar- 
ship, leadership and service. "It 
was our feeling," said Miss Har- 
rington, "that if Mortar Board 
recognizes excellence in leader- 
ship and service, it should re- 
cognize excellence, rather than 
the average, in scholarship as 
well. The university is an acade- 
mic community and ostensibly 
the leaders in an academic com- 
munity should be scholars." 



LANGUAGE DEPARTMENT 
SPONSORS EXPERIMENT 



The Carnegie Project, in its 
second year of intensive experi- 
mentation, is an undertaking by 
all language departments on 
campus for the purpose of im- 
proving the teachings of all lan- 
guages, through audio, visual, 
and oral methods. 

Established by funds of the 
Carnegie Grant, the project, in 
its experimental stage, is trying 
to establish a more meaningful 
approach for languages through 
laboratory procedures in which 
tapes provide the basis of learn- 
ing. 

An example of the audio-visual 



aids used has been the German 
film, "Emil Und die Detektive," 
brought in as a supplement to 
the reading in the first year Ger- 
man course and received en- 
thusiastically. 

"The experimentation involves 
a great deal of work and is far 
from being concluded, but stu- 
dents have been very cooperative 
and have offered many helpful 
suggestions," states Mrs. Tra- 
han, assistant coordinator of the 
project. 

I>r. Ferrigno is coordinator of 
the project.

idences with a subscription 
pledge drive. 

The faculty will be approached 
by Mrs. Levine, wife of Profes-

Subscription Pledges Sought 
A subscription pledge is an 
official agreement to give blood 
when the Red Cross Bloodmobile 
comes to the University Novem- 
ber fourth and fifth. 

All persons, under 21, must 
have the consent of their parent 
or guardian in order to give 
blood. Realizing this, the sub- 
scription drive permits adequate 
time for parental consent to be 
obtained. 

All donors have the privilege 
to specify the organization or 
person in need to receive their 
blood. 

In past years, the Student 
Blood Drive has been a contri- 
butor to the Korean war effort 
as well as a donor to local 
emergencies. 



BLAST ROCKS 
MEN'S DORMS 



At approximately 11 last night 
the air was rent by a sharp 
blast .»f as yet unidentified 
nature. It is speculated that it 
was caused by the breaking of 
the sound-barrier by an aircraft. 

Whatever the cause of this 
blast, the immediate effect was 
■touting from Van Meter dormi- 
tory, apparently directed against 
Chadboume and Greenough; and 
this was interrupted by spora- 
dic blasts of firecrackers. It is 
thought that the firecrackers were 
from Chadboume, and as the re- 



porter left to write this account 
the rooms in the dormitory were 
in the process of being searched. 

At about 11:15, the campus 
police drove up, having been 
hummoned by Mr. William Burk- 
hardt, Assistant Dean of Men, 
and Faculty Resident of Van 
Meter. 

The demonstration broke up at 
approximately 11:30. Residents 
from Butterfteld had gathered 
on the roadside, hut their partici- 
pation was passive.

First Things First 

When anyone speaks of 
'education, he usually has 
his own definition of the 
word as his point of refer- 
ence. Almost everyone will 
[agree that education is a 
process of acquiring knowl- 
edge through training and 
I development of the mind, 
• I but it does not rest there. 
There is a more practical way to look at 
what the word means in today's world. If 
education is what we have come to college 
to obtain then we must all carry something 
of it away when we leave. That something 
must be education in one form or another. 

Nevertheless, there are every year, count- 
less college graduates who have performed 
the requirements for a degree and yet are 
considered by some to be uneducated. There- 
fore, if education is something that they have 
carried off campus with them, it should be 
defined in such a way that it is common to all. 
IM us then extend our practical defini- 
tion for education as the ability to do the 
most important thing at the time when it 
must be done. If you are able to study at the 
time it must be done, work when it is time to 
work, and allow time for your social life 
when it is proper to allocate such time; in 
effect, always doing first things first. If you 
can do so you have already become educated 
to some degree. 

This is an opinion which realizes that 
there are many other notions on the subject, 
however, if you can do the right thing at the 
time it should be done, you have learned an 
important lesson.

The room wasn't much. Not if you were going to judge it by any 
known standards of beauty, symmetry, functionalism — or even sturdi- 
MHi H WM a Zoo lab laid out much like ours in Feraald, but with un- 
even floor, scarred, chunked, varnished desks, and rudimentary equip- 
ment. The only reminders of the 20th century were the ebony micro- 
scopes at each desk place. I'll always remember this room, though. 
Pete Eldridge '59 was in this room at the summer school of the 
Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole along with some 50 
others trying to find out how things ticked. 

The room was dynamic, full of people; that is, they were people 
when you walked in, but individuals when you walked out. Each of 
them was absorbed, giving the room an intense charged atmosphere. 
Searching, examining. f<in-ting out answers, they tackled segments of 
their individual problems: one was drawing, trying to capture the 
truth of the microscope enlargcmfnt on paper: a hefty blond was fish- 
ing a specimen out of a dented discolored bucket; a Nun was fever- 
ishly flipping tissue-thin pair's covered with precise line drawings 
and fine print; a bearded, harelegged boy dressed in knaki Bermudas 
and olive drab poncho steed in tin- doorway holding high a dripping 
fresh specimen triumphantly. 

Microscopes, buckets, jars, slides, staple specimens, an assigned 
quarter of a desk, a lamp and drawer — those were basic. The individ- 
ual had his own library surrounding him; books open, stacked one on 
another, forming a bulwark around his microscope. This was his in- 
dividual collection all bearing on the particular animal or function 
which he was examining, watching, discovering. The lanky, tanned 
boy in the corner seat, for example, was trying to measure the heart- 
beat of an embryo starfish. 

Tacked carefully on a piece of soft wall board, acting as a bul- 
letin board, was a neatly typed list of field trips, assignments; Nob- 
scot point (fairly protected, some waves); Lagoon pond; Cuttybunk 
Island pond; Barnstable cold water sand flats; Atlantic tidal pool. The 
sheet was an island of order among the ads for trips to Nantucket 
and Martha's Vineyard, and scrawled notes announcing dances, pic- 
nics, and polyglot ads of various books, motors, fishing tackle, and 
cars for sale. 

Why all the discussion of this place, anyway? First, because this 
group really had it. They were learning, not out of some text, pages 
38-5C, but striking out on their own. The entire room was vibrant with 
the song of work, the song of discovery. 

The University awards a scholarship to a Zoo or Botany major 
early in the Spring for six weeks work in fields like Marine Ecology, 
and Botany, Invertebrate Zoo, and Physiology. Six weeks of lectures, 
four hours of freedom in lab within range of an extensive library of 
special reports, theses, and projects over and above the usual author- 
itative texts, all within a few hundred feet of this fishing harbor. 

You can't get in even if you have the money for it. I asked. 
Interested grad students come first. In Pete's group, 45 out of 55 were 
grad students; grad students who discuss theories of evolution, pro- 
jects such as work on algae bread in their schools, their own projects 
and interests. 

Pete, a Zoo major, was awarded the scholarship by the commit- 
tee under Dr. Rollason of the Zoo Department. 
"It was a terrific experience," says Pete. 




The Last Word On Athletics 



For Your Sons 
And Daughters 

For the education majors at the Univer- 
sity as well as for those who will ultimately 
send their sons and daughters to the high 
schools of this state, the Collegian wishes to 
point out the three main recommendations 
which Dr. James B. Conant, former president 
of Harvard University and former U. S. am- 
bassador to West Germany, made in a con- 
ference here last Saturday. 

First, a vigorous campaign to eliminate 
the small high school through district reor- 
ganization. Second, to elect an excellent 
school board which understands the func- 
tions of the board, and which will leave ad- 
ministration to the superintendent; one who 
is first rate. Third, that the electorate be 
made t<» realize the needs of the public 
schools and that the criticism of public edu- 
cation be answeiv.1 by factual analysis, 
school by school. 

Dr. GonAUt also called for a first class 
counseling system which is of primary im- 
portance to today's hijrh school seniors. 

In all probability your children will at- 
tend ttvi high schools in the Commonwealth 
and it will be up to you to see that they re- 
ceive the best • duration possible — you can do 
it by active participation and interest in the 
school board organization of your commun- 
ity. J.W. 



To the Editor: 



The editorial in Monday's issue of the Collegian is a perfect ex- 
ample of the type of writing of someone who cares little for any sport, 
and especially U of M football. The writer, who I assume is a female, 
takes the stand that is popular among pseudo-intellectuals on the 
campus; that sport, especially football, is not necessary to campus 
life and we would be better off without it. Apparently, the editorial 
writer feels if we must have a team, it should at least have the de- 
cency of being a losing team. Of course, the Collegian and the other 
literary efforts of these same pseudo-intellectuals are vital to campus 
life, as can be seen by their frantic begging the Senate every year 
for a bigger budget, so they can print more of the same drivel. 

The U of M has finally come up with a good team, and it is about 
time the Collegian editorial staff started supporting it, rather than 
knocking it. The football team has about 50 players, of whom less than 
half have scholarships. This hardly suggests a bought team. The Colle-' 
gian supposedly trains English majors to be journalists. The football 
team, however, has at least 14 Physical Education majors on the team, 
probably more (14 played in last Saturday's game by my count). Just 
M the Collegian trains journalists on the student's money, the football 
team trains coaches on the student's money. 

A winning football team very seldom detracts from a college's 
prestige, even in these days of de-emphasis in many of the "Ivy- 
League" schools. Any intelligent business investigates the personality 
and acad.mir record of a student, not his college's football record be- 
fore hiring him. Perhaps it is the goal of many of these pseudo-intel- 
lects for UMass to go "Ivy-League." But, UM is UM, and if they 
don't like it they can always change their affiliation. Also, if this is a 
:i of prestige, what has the Collegian ever added to the prestige 
of the U of M? In my opinion this addition is nil. 

The U of M has about 5000 students, and about 4JK»0 of them 
feel pv..ud«r of their school when it produces a winning football team. 
It's too bad the oth<r 10 comprise the Collegian editorial staff. 

John Lupien '59 

Editor's Nott:: The editorial mxm written by RM, a staff reporter. 

The Collegian trust* that when proper balance in the fields of 
athletics and scholastics is dearly established in the minds of all fac- 
ulty and students alike — we will them be ready for national recogni- 
tion m the academic and sport*' worlds. JW 




The Collegian is proud to be the first 
Recognized Student Organization to congrat- 
ulate Mortar Board on its new scholastic 
policy. 

It was voted last night to raise the mini- 
mum scholastic requirement for membership 
from 2. 1 to 2.6, and it is expected that it will 
be further raised on a graduated scale in 
future years. 

The criteria of scholarship, leadership 
and service on which Mortar Board candi- 
dates are judged assures the university com- 
munity that the members of Mortar Board 
are truly campus leaders, and Mortar Board , 
is a true honor society. 

The Collegian is certain that Mortar 
Board will continue to set an example of 
academic and individual excellence in years 
to come. 



The Myth Of Nuclear War 

• by JAMES A. MERINO '60 

(The ideas and opinions expressed in this col- 
umn are those entirely of Mr. Merino and do not 
necessarily express the opinion of the staff of the 
Collegian,). 

The greatest danger facing the world in the 
Atomic Age is not what may be the consequences of 
a nuclear cataclysm, but what effect the myth of 
nuclear war is having on the thinking of the free 
peoples of the West. 

As a result of this myth, there has grown in the 
Western democracies a class of intellectual hand- 
wringers who constantly speculate upon, and deplore, ' 
the consequences of nuclear warfare — speculations 
which in my opinion have exaggerated beyond reason 
the debilitating effects of such warfare. Also, these 
people do nothing constructive on their own initia- 
tive to mitigate the situation. 

English author Philip Toynbee at one time ar- 
gued that the consequences of nuclear warfare would 
be so terrible that the only alternative to the West 
was to negotiate peace on any terms, including, if 
necessary, complete and unconditional surrender to 
Russia. When the Archbishop of Canterbury replied 
in strong opposition to Toynbee, declaring that it 
was never efficacious to settle such problems out of 
fear of the results, the Laborite press, with the us- 
ual disrespect typical of Socialism for Christian 
morality, declared blasphemously that the prelate 
ought to retire from the priesthood. The Laborite 
response shows clearly the concern of the Socialists 
merely for the preservation of the human race as 
a species of animal — a species to be preserved even 
in servitude and amorality. Is this not the typical 
Socialist view of human society, a view which looks 
upon men as merely a herd of cattle on a farm, being 
kept contented by the State as a symbol of the 
farmer? Is not Russian Communism with its atten- 
dant tyranny but the final logical development of 
the perverted Socialist notion of mass security at 
the direction of the State? 

Another useless handwringer, in my opinion, is 
philosopher Bertrand Russell, who at one time ar- 
gued that life under Communism was better than 
dying because, as he stated, there was good chance 
that the successors to the present butchers in the 
Kremlin may be as 'enlightened' as the successors 
of Ghengis Khan were some 700 years ago. Indeed! 
I should like to ask Russell whether he would have 
consented to live under Hitler's Nazism or Musso- 
lini's Fascism, expecting the same enlightenment 
of their successors as he does of Khruschev's; or 
whether he ranks himself among the other so-called 
haters of war who do not hesitate to convert the two 
great cataclysms of our present century as veritable 
Crusades To Save The World For The Liberals. If 
that is all Mr. Russell can offer, then I maintain he 
ought to keep silent henceforth, and retire — basking 
in the reflecting glory of Prinripm Mathemat.ira. 

We of the Christian and Free Western Democra- 
cies must indeed work for a world enjoying a lasting 
and honorable peace, but we must never allow our- 
selves for a moment to consider the bartering of hu- 
man dignity and morality merely to avoid a war. no 
matter how terrible the immediate consequences of 
that war appear to be.

The sororities are busy work- 
ing on their floats for Friday 
night and hoping it will not rain 
again this year. Saturday Pan- 
hellcnic representatives will be 
selling mums at the game; this 
is their main money-making

have a buffet supper followed by 
a small ceremony. Sunday, 
Sigma Delta Tau is having a 
buffet dinner for the sisters and

chairman of each sorority and 
fraternity were invited to a tea 
held by Phi Delta Nu for their 
new housemother, Mrs. Emma 
Marshall. 

Tonight, Assistant to the Dean 
of Women, Mrs. Gonon, will be 
the dinner guest of Sigma Kappa. 

Next Tuesday Sigma Delta 
Tau will have an exchange 
supper with Tau Kappa Epsilon.

ROBERT H. SWISHER, B.S.E.E., GROVE CITY COLLEGE, '54, SAYS: 

I like my job. Here's why. 

"I'm a radio transmission engineer for Bell Telephone 
Company of Pennsylvania. My work is interesting and 
full of variety, and 1 get all the responsibility ' can 
handle. Have a look at today's assignment, for example 
—and see for yourself." 




"8:30 a.m. I'm at my desk applying a new method for over- 
coming inlcrfcrencc on Pittsburgh's mobile radio channels. It 
involves operating inactive channels on reduced power." 



"10:45 a.m. Before any modifications can he made, it's impor- 
tant that I check apparatus and wiring options. I hat's what 
I'm doing here at the Remote ( ontrol Terminal equipment." 




"1:30 p.m. After lunch, I take a company car out to the 
transmitter tower site. Here I check wiring and explain our 
plan to one of our mobile radio maintenance men." 





"3:13 p.m. I review my proposed modifications of auxiliary 
control circuits with Supervisor Sid Graul. Now I'll prepare 
work orders, and next week we'll make operational tests." 



"See what I mean? 1 really get to carry the ball.' 
Soon I'll be taking a speciaj course in advanced elec- 
tronics at Hell Labs — a great opportunity. As 1 said 
— 1 like my job." 

'Like Bob Swisher, you may find a bright engi- 
neering future with the Bell Telephone Companies. 
Talk with the Bell interviewer when he visits your 
cimipus. And read the Bell Telephone booklet on 
file in your Placement Office. 



"Final phase. The operational test is made from an actual 
mobile radio unit. I'll make test calls and monitor the chan- 
nels from various points within the Pittsburgh area."

Betts Named 
Honors Candidate 

Robert F. Rett*, a senior 
majoring in zoology has been 
named an Honors Candidate. As 
a junior at UMass, Mr. Betts 
was approved by the Honors 
Council to undertake a research 
project in his senior year. Suc- 
cessful completion of this pro- 
ject will result in his graduation 
with departmental honors. 

Betts is working with Prof. 
Paul A. Swenson on s study of 
how radiation affects the manu- 
facture of protein by the yeast 
cell. This research project is 
supported in part by the Atomic 
Energy Commission. because 
they are interested in the 
damaging effects of radiation on 
li\ing forms. 

When interviewed, Mr. Betts 
emphasized his appreciation of 
the opportunity to work with a 
inguished scientist and t«> 
Exp e ri e n ce for himself the thrills 
of discovery of new and perhaps 
important knowledge. 

The Honors Candidate is 
manager of the varsity football 
team, president of both Adelphia 
and the Campus Religious Coun- 
cil, snd also a member of Kappa 
Sig.

Morn in Baltimore in 1915, 
Billie has led a full and almost 
storybook life. She had to quit 
school while still in the fifth 
grade, and by the time she was 
fifteen, she was singing at Jerry 
Preston's in Harlem. Before she 
was quite out of her teens sin- 
was touring the nation with 
some of the bigger bands of the 
•30's. 

Acquiring stature as one of 
the all time great "blues" 
singers, Billie was thrown into 
prison on a narcotics charge ami 
all that the lamenting public- 
had to remember her by were a 
few recordings made with the 
old Bennv Goodman and Artie 



i all happened 
I 147, when dupe took Billie 
down to the depths at set i 
pondency. 

She decided that the ninth 
circle of Dante's Hell was too 
much for her. and in the early 
fifties made it back up to the 
top. In 1954 she toured Europe, 
and retained a bigger success 
than e>er before. 

Perhaps, with the exception of 
the primal Bessie Smith, V 
Holiday has been the strongest 
influence among jazz vocalists. 
Deriving as she does from both 
Miss Smith and that horn guided 
voice oi LiOUlS /vxinsvrungi duui 
evolved a blithely swinging style 
of phrasing, intuition, and inter- 
pretation which has been copied 
by most of the singers who have 
come after her. 

The inner disturbance is still 
present, but the outer confidence 
of the "old" Bessie Smith is still 
with her, and along with it per- 
haps some of the most inspired 
sinking in jazz.

THIRTY YEARS AGO 

•Dad's Day is again about to appear on campus. It is to be ob- 
served next Saturday. This day was inaugurated last year and pr oved 
to be such a success that the committee is planning to put on an even 
more colorful program for the benefit of the Dads of nil the students. 

"Such a day as this provid.s an unparalleled opportunity for the 
parents to become better acquainted with the collegiate life of their 
sons and daughters, in that they will be able to meet the faculty and 
inspect the various buildings. This will aid in increasing the interest 
the parents have in the College which is of highest value to the wel- 
fare of the institution." 

TWENTY YEARS AGO 

••-,00 fathers are expected to take part in Dad's Day here Satur-

Dear Aunt Ruthie... 



Kditor's Note: Please address all 
letters to Aunt Ruthie, 

c/o Collegian, 

Dear Aunt Ruthie, 

What bothers me on this 
campus is the apathy on the 
part of the male students con- 
cerning their general appearance. 
What I mean are such things as 
appearing in class unshaven, 
wearing dirty sneakers and un- 
pressed pants. Don't they have 
any pride? 

Unhappy Coed 

Dear Unhappy Coed, 

Yes, a three days growth of 
beard looks rather uncouth, but 
the girls are sometimes careless 
about their looks also. If you 
could get your girl friends to set 
up a good example of tidiness, 
perhaps the boys would follow. 

Aunt Ruthie 

Dear Aunt Ruthie, 

I am a freshman boy and have 
a problem. It seems that nine 
times out of ten when I ask out 
a girl she is going to a frater-

r.itv party. What can I do? 

D.L. 

Dear I »U 

Try asking out an upper- 
class girl. I'm sure she is tired 
of fraternity parties by now, and 
would welcome a "different 

evening." 

Aunt Ruthie 

Dear Aunt Ruthie, 

My room-mate and I have a 
problem: The girl in the room 
below us is always complaining 
that we make too much noise. 
We try to be quiet, but we still 
have to live. What should we do ? 

R. 

Dear K. 

Explain to her in a polite way 
that a certain amount of noise 
is unavoidable in the course of 
a normal evening. If this doesn't 
work suggest that she study at 
the 1 1 be. where it is always 
quiet.

RD's To Present 
Inherit The Wind' 

by William Hilliard '«1 
Guest Reporter 

The flaming Now York Tir 
headlines during May, June, ami 
July of 1W5, at the time of the 
renowned Scope's "monkey" trial, 
Itated that John Thomas Scopes 
was indicted in Dayton, Tennes- 
for teaching evolution. The 
English profeiaor had said that 
religion and science have se- 
parate fi.ids. Bryan, the world- 
famous lawyer, in defending 
Tennessee and its law called 
evolution an attack on the 
Church. 

On July 15, a frightened young 
boy took the witness stand and 
testified that his teacher, Mr. 
John Thomas Seopefl "taught 
that in the beginning the earth 
was a big hot mass, too hot to 
sustain life, and that it cooled 
off and life began as a one- 
celled animal. Then it got out 
onto land and began to develop 
and had its climax in man." 

This idea, originating in Dar- 
win's Origin of Spociat and 
violating the recently enacted 
school statute forbidding any 
instruction of evolutionary 
theory in public schools, became 
the subject of heated controversy 
between scientists, instructors, 
and clergymen. 

Times, and thus attitudes, have 
changed. The average school 
Biology textbook teaches evolu- 
tion as an established and ac- 
cepted theory — the same in- 
struction that in 1925 shocked 
the naiion. But one member of 
the UMass. Education Dept. 
states in effect that 'evolution is 
taught factually, with no attempt 
to bring in the religious aspect.' 
Students may still form their 
own opinions as to a First Cause. 
The Roister Doisters are work- 
ing hard to bring you the 
Broadway hit, Inherit the Wind, 
by Lawrence and Lee on Novem- 
ber 14th and 15th, a play based 
on this controversy. It re-enacts 
the Scopes trial, produces the 
violent arguments, and digs 
deeply into the heart of an 
educator who was "ready to 
fight, and if need be, die, for 
that which he conceives to be 
right."

Booters Win 2ndStraight 



Wins E&S Award 



by Pete Temple 

Before a small crowd 
Alumni Field Saturday after- 
noon, the I Mass soccer team 
blasted Wo l ech, 6-0, for 

their w »nd straight shutout 
<ry. 

Grab Early Lead 

- jumped off to a 
quick fir»t period lead when Ben 
Doherty found the nets soon 
after the start of the game. A 
few minutes later Paul Mailman 
scored the first of his two goals, 
and the Redmen led by a score 
of 20. 



Before the end of the half, 
found the ma 
Mailman pumped in his second 

Redoes a l«»p- 
: s-D half-time lead. 

In the -•■•<>n<l half coach 
Larry Brigga emptied the bench, 
giving everyone a chance to 
action. Impressive were reserve 
goalies, Butch Worsch and 
Charlie Correa who played the 
third and fourth periods, res- 
pectively. 

Correa was called on to make 
quite a few saves near the end, 
when the Engineers put on their 



Conference Clipboard 



by DENNIS CROWLEY 

This was a big weekend for the 
Yankee Conference f oo t b a 1 1 
teams as four YanCon elevens 
came through with wins. The big 
one was of course UMass' first 
victory of the season against 
Brandt-is at Waltham. 

In other games around the cir- 
cuit, Connecticut showed off its 
powerful offense against a hap- 
less A.I.C. team, 55-8. The Husk- 
ies rolled up a big lead in the 
opening minutes of the game and 
just kept going. 

Maine, the league darkhorse, 
kept its win streak going as it 
took its third in a row with a 
22- p victory over Vermont. This 
game does not count in confer- 
ence standings, however, since 



this was the Catamounts only ap- 
pearance against conference com- 
petition. Coming on the heels of 
a 37-8 victory over the Rhode 
Island Rams, this makes the 
Black Bears a factor to be reck- 
oned with in the standings. 

Rhode Island finally began to 
live up to its pre-season ratings 
as the Rams edged out the New 
Hampshire Wildcats, 20-13. This 
was the first win of the season 
for the Rams. 

Two big games will be played 
in the conference this coming 
weekend and the results may de- 
cide the championship. Connecti- 
cut will meet the Redmen in its 
first game against Yankee Con- 
ference competition, and Maine 
will take on New Hampshire. 



SPORTALK 



by Hal Dutton 

Warren Spahn, the ageless 
left-hander, garnered his second 
series win against the Yankees 
Sunday with a neat two hitter. 
Last year he beat the Bt eag e l - 
men in the fourth game at 
Milwaukee. 

Spahn is the lone Brave survi- 
vor of the 1948 National League 
Champs who lost out to the 
Cleveland Indians in six games. 

At the age of thirty-seven, he 
has definitely established himself 
as one of the greatest hurlers in 
the history of the game. This 
year he won 20 games for the 
ninth time, a record for south- 
paws. With 248 major league 
wins, his goal ia to reach the 
mugical 300 circle. 

Red Schoendienst and Enos 
Slaughter, enemies in the series 
the paat two years, were team- 
mates on the 1946 Cardinals who 
topped the Red Sox in the fall 
classic. 

Saturday Sidelights 
You may have been wondering 
about the poor coverage of the 
game Saturday by WMl'A. The 
press box at Gordon Field is 
made of tin and our micro- 



phones picked up the public ad- 
dress announcer perfectly. One 
amplifier was on the roof right 
r the radio booth. 
The Redmen doubled their 
total offensive output for the 
season with 310 yards. 

Our passing percentage 

jumped with 8 for 11 and 170 
yards. Jack Conway threw for 
two TD's running his total to 
three for the season. Conway, 
Billy Maxwell, and Paul Chartier 
all got into the act with com- 
pletions. 

We scored two points on the 
point after, three times in five 
tries. In eight tries this fall, we 
have made two points four 
times. Most coaches figure on 
making two about 35 per cent 
of the time. 

UConn Here Saturday 

The Huskies will be here 
Saturday, as they begin their 
quest to regain the Bean Pot 
shared with Rhode Island last 
season. Bob Ingall's club is 21 
on the year. They rolled up 500 
yards against AIC last week. 
You can bet that they won't 
have any field day like two years 
ago when they ravaged the 
1'Mass Homecoming.

shutout was preserved. 

While the Umie defense was 
thwarting the W.P.I, attack, the 
offense was adding insult to in- 
jury. Fred Iosue and Jim Rosen- 
berg each scored a goal apiece 
to set the final tally at 6-0.

will return home Saturday morn-

Billy Reynolds, speedy half-

against Brandeis University 
Saturday. 

Reynolds scored his first TD 
in the first period on a 58 yard 
pass play from quarterback 



Jack Conway, his second on a 
short end sweep midway through 
the third period, and the third 
came in the final quarter when 
he intercepted a Brandeis aerial 
and rambled 60 yards to paydirt. 
He now leads the Redmen in 
-coring with four TD's and has 
snared three passes good for 120 
yards gained. 



Intramural Games 



The first week of Intramural 
Football was highlighted by the 
double victories of LCA and TC. 
LCA posted two shutouts by de- 
feating AEPi and AGR by iden- 
tical scores of 19-0. TC throttled 
PMD 19-0 and sneaked by SAE 
19-12. In other games, QTV beat 
AGR 24-18, PSK swamped PSD 
47-0, SAE easily defeated ASP 



26-0 and TKE tripped up TEP 
12-6. 

Attendance at the games thist 
week was fair, however it is 
hoped that more students will 
come out to back their teams. As 
the teams move into the second 
week of play, some of these de- 
feated teams will be ready to 
knock off the leaders.

Parade, Rally, Bonfire 

Welcome Alumni 



Tonight's float parade, raiiy, 
and bonfire will officially open 
the 19"»8 Homecoming Weekend 
at UMass. The weekend will 
also feature the Football game 
tomorrow afternoon against 
UConn, and an informal dance 
starting at 8 p.m. Buildings 
throughout the campus will be 
open for inspection by the 
alumni. 

About 35 floats from dormi- 
tories, fraternities, and sorori- 
ties will participate in the 
parade, along with the Redmen 
Marching Band, the Preci- 
sionettes, the Bay State Rifles, 
and the Homecoming Queen, 
Dorothy Ellert, and her escort. 

The Cheerleaders will follow 
in cars behind the Queen with 
the Blood Drive float close be- 
hind, and the remaining floats 
will complete the parade lineup. 
The judging will be in four 
categories this year — girls 
dorms, boys dorms, fraternities, 
and sororities. The floats will be 
judged on each of the following 
categories: participation, ability 
to inspire the team, overall 
effect, composition, and origi- 
nality. 

The judges for this year's 
parade are: Paul F. Norton, 
head of the art department, 
Miss Doris Abramson, of the 
speech department, and Mr. Ro- 
bert Williams of Amherst, set 
designer and stage arranger for 
the Roister Doisters. Their stand 
will be located on or near the 
corner of Amity and North 
Pleasant Streets in Amherst. 

The parade will start at 6 p.m. 
at the corner of North Hadley 
ltd. and Linclon Avenue. It will 
proceed down Lincoln Avenue to 
Amity St., up Amity to North 

Minimum Ave. 
Raised ByPanHel 

The Pan Hellenic Council 
voted yesterday to raise the 
minimum semester requirement 
for pledging sororities from 1.8 
to 2.0. 

This change will be effective 
with the class of 1962. 

According to Nancy Wilkinson 
"i!t, president, this was to en- 
courage and improve scholastic 
■ffort on campus. 

It is to be noted that just 
Tuesday Mortar Board voted to 
raise its minimum requirement 
from 2.4 to 2.6, with the recom- 
mendation that the averages be 
raised on a graduated scale in 
future years.

Pleasant, and down North Pea- 
sant to the campus. 

When the parade reaches the 
lights at the East Experiment 
station, it will turn down Ellis 
Drive and head for the SU. The 
cars and marching groups will 
head directly for the rally area, 
and the floats will be parked in 
the North Parking Lot. 

The rally will start about 15 
minutes after the Queen and 
the marching groups have 
reached the rally area. The Bon- 
fire will add to the usual cheer- 
ing and fight songs at the rally. 

One of the highlights of the 
rally will be the arrival of Dorm 
No. 15's hearse at the rally area 
with the UConn coffin, which 
will be carried to the bonfire and 
cremated — just like the Redmen 
will cremate Vie Huskies tomor- 
row starting at 2 p.m.! 

Maroon Keys and Adelphians 
will be on hand to organize the 
floats in their positions prior to 
the start of the parade.

DONT GAMBLE 

Undoubtedly, many of you have seen the 
sign on vour local transit systems; "DON'T 
WAIT I N'TIL IT'S TOO LATE, GET YOUR 
POLIO SHOTS NOW!" Have you taken its 
advice? A lot of people in Detroit— nearly 
500 to be exact— are learning the hard way; 
they have come down with polio this past 

year. 

It wasn't long ago when our summer va- 
cations were clouded by the fear of polio — 
especially when it hit the kid next door or the 
one down the street. Fortunately, since the 
epidemic of 1955, Massachusetts has been 
relatively free from .this fear. If you have 
escaped this dreaded disease so far, be thank- 
ful. But why press your luck? Your delay has 
already cost you something. From now on, 
you will not be able to get free Salk Vac- 
cines in the Bay State. To pay a few dollars 
for polio shots, however, is still a good in- 
vestment. Many Detroiters are now paying 
much more for waiting until it's too late. 

T.M. 



OUT OF PLACE 

The explosion and subsequent riot last 
Tuesday evening is a typical act of some 
groups' of "students" who think college is 
nothing but one big playground. Believe it 
or not, you are supposed to be obtaining an 
education which will help you enter the com- 
petitive world as mature men. Last Tues- 
day's "heroes" don't seem to be deriving 
much <»f this benefit from the university. 
They, and their followers, had better grow 
up and realize they're not in high school any 

more. 

T.M. 



MORE NONSENSE 

The Collr</ian has a correction to make. 
There will be no bonfire tonight. Our "high 
school heroes" decided to light the woodpile 
last night and spoil everyone's fun. Hope 
you enjoyed yourselves, boys. 



BLOOD DRIVE 

Since the days of antiquity the mention 
of blood has always made a deep impression 
on people. Usually, the mention of blood has 
been associated with tragedy and death. 
Now. in the light of modern knowledge, as 
blood is being used by physicians to allevi- 
ate human suffering, this traditional atti- 
tude has disappeared and this magic fluid 
is considered to be an instrument for sav- 
ing human life. 

This editorial is to introduce you to the 
fact that the annual Campus Blood Drive 
will be beJd during the coming month to 
give all students and faculty an opportunity 
to help a worthy cause. 

In combatting disease and in aiding re- 
eearch the need for blood is tremendous. The 
knowledge derived from the experience of 
contributing to this cause, far outweighs the 
small trouble incurred. 

The appeal is here. Won't you, as a res- 
ponsible American, give? 

K.D. 



by PAT WARD 

The Art Department at the University of Massachusetts, previ- 
ously a branch of landscape architecture, has been moved from the 
jurisdiction of the School of Agriculture, to its rightful place in the 
College of Arts and Sciences. The department has been created this 
year; it has expanded the program of courses previously available, and 
will continue to do so. Dr. Paul Norton, head of the department, ex- 
pects that by next year, it will be possible to major in art. 

Dr. Norton is one of the two men in the department. He comes 
to us from Penn State where he has taught since 1947. (I might say 
— and will say — here, as an aside, that it took me nearly as long to 
find him as it took him, from his college graduation day to today to 
arrive on our faculty. When I trekked to Wilder Hall, home now of 
some, and previously of all, art classes, a sympathetic secretary told 
me his office was in the Liberal Arts Annex. I shuddered, but went. 
The ROTC, the Psychology Department, and the English Department 
were unable to tell me where the Art Department was located. I went, 
in mild desperation, to the Dean of Men's Office, where a telephone 
call, giving me explicit directions, finally directed me through LA 
Annex's corridor mazes to my destination.) He attended Oberlin Col- 
lege, receiving his degree in mathematics, and his Ph.D. in Art His- 
tory, from Princeton. 

Dr. Norton is essentially an architectural historian — he is current- 
ly Book Review Editor of the Journal of the Society of Architectural 
Historians. He did his doctoral dissertation on the early history of the 
United State Capitol Building, and he hopes, with revision, to have it 
published in book form. He is also currently represented in print by 
an essay in the Art Bulletin on the missing Cupid of Michelangelo, a 
topic which shows his versatility. 

Mr. Donald Matheson, the other new man, following graduation 
from Groton, attended West Point, and retired after ten years in the 
service with the rank of colonel. He received his Master's Degree in 
art at the University of Michigan. His field is the graphic arts, par- 
ticularly lithography, in which he has received considerable recogni- 
tion, but he also works in other media. A water color of his is hung 
in the vestibule of President Mather's office. 

Mr. Matheson teaches, at the moment, courses in oils, watercolors, 
and freehand drawing. Dr. Norton teaches the art history courses 
that are offered, and he hopes very much to be able to offer next 
fall a course of 19th and 20th century architecture. 

Dr. Norton feels that architecture is an open field in Amherst and 
on the campus. While he expresses great admiration for some build- 
ings, such as Old Chapel and the Old Stockbridge Hour", he feels that 
there is a great opportunity for constructing fine examples of modern 
architecture. 

People may not always like a building of radical design, but it 
is Dr. Norton's contention that such a building will leave a lasting 
impression on them, and that if it is a well done job, they will respect 
it for that, and come ultimately to acceptance and approval of its 
architecture. He believes that harmony among the buildings on cam- 
pus may be achieved through using similar materials, but that modern 
structural techniques and design should also be used. 

Dr. Norton has many hopes and plans for the expansion of the 
art department, and it seems more than likely he will achieve his goals. 



Lest We Forget 



by TED MAEL 

(Editor's Note: This article by Ted Mael reflects his own opin- 
ions, whicfi do not necessarily coincide tvith those of the CoLLEGlAS.) 

With all our attention being drawn to Formosa, Quemoy, etc., no 
one seems to know or care about what's going on in the Middle East. 
To give you an indication of a typical day in this area of "uneasy 
calm," here are some headlines taken from last Wednesday's New York 
Timw 1) Premier Quells Uprising in Iraq, 2) Cairo Radio Opens Anti- 
U.S. Drive, 3) 1 Killed, 29 Hurt in Lebanon Riots. If the United States 
wants to salvage any Arab nations as pro-western allies, we had bet- 
ter do something quickly. Right now, our present Mid-East policy con- 
sists of nothing but an absurd prayer for things to remain the same. 
We must adopt a positive and unequivocal foreign policy. 

First of all. we must recognize that the most dynamic force in 
the Arab states is not democracy nor communism, but rather national- 
ism. Nationalists are quite opportunistic; they will become Commu- 
nists, Republicans, or followers of a military dictator depending on 
who supports their cause. Their opponents are the decadent mon- 
archies such as those of Farouk and Faisal in the past and, presently, 
Saud and Hussein. As long as we keep supporting these potentates of 
feudalism, we have about as much chance of surviving in the Mid- 
East as a noble during the French Revolution. In our future policy, 
we will have to support the nationalists even at the cost of having 
the kings turn to Russia and cutting off our oil supplies. It is the fu- 
ture that counts and the future of the monarchs is very dim. 

Perhaps, this policy sounds very brutal and opportunistic to you; 
but if you stop to think, the United States is going against its prin- 
ciples more by supporting the present monarchial system than by sup- 
porting nationalism. The ideal nationalism is much akin to our own 
ideals set down in 177«i, By supporting Arab nationalism I don't mean 
we should support superficial synonym, Nasserism. Nasser is nothing 
but a Hitler-in-diaper, and his type of rule will produce nothing but 
war and chaos in an area that so vitally needs peace and stability. 

Our second major problem is the fanatical hatred between Israel 
and the Arab states. Much of the resentment against the United States 
stems from our support of Israel's independence. Our Mid-East pres- 
tige greatly depends on our ability to effect a rapprochment between 
these two belligerents. One solution would be a pledge by Israel not 
to allow any more immigration. One of the Arabs' greatest fears is 
that of Israel's expansion caused by the swelling of her population. 
Most of all, let's get some sort of a strong policy. 



One Writer Too Many 



To the Editor: 

I see in the Collegian of October 8th that the 
column Wednesday Coniid •ntial is now being writ- 
ten by a different author, but with the same old 
name of Eog« 1'arker. Why must a campus paper 
continue to use assumed names for its columnists, 
especially when the staff can not decide among it- 
self who" will assume which name? Again I protest 
against this Col leu inn policy of stories written be- 
hind an "iron curtain." 

Jim Hirtle '."'.' 

EDITOR'S NOTE: A newspaper reserves the 
right to any column published under an alias and 
use any number of writers it wants. The Uncle Dud- 
ley column of the Boston Globe has many different 
writers. 



Reply To Colonel Weaver 

To the Editor: 

The letter in the October 6th Collegian from 
Colonel James R. Weaver castigating my letter of 
the 29th as being erroneous in facts, was itself ser- 
iously at fault for that reason. 

The Nationalist Chinese HAVE been raiding the 
Mainland from Quemoy and Matsu. I quote from 
the N.Y. Times Oct. 30, 1957 "Taipei, Taiwan, Oct. 
29 (AP) Military officials announced today that Na- 
tionalist Chinese forces in the Matsu Islands have 
carried out twenty-four patrol missions on Commu- 
nist China's mainland in the last six months. 

"The announcement said that patrols had killed 
'scores' of Communist soldiers and captured twenty- 
one junks and other small craft." 

Most nations of the world have expressed a de- 
sire to see the islands given to the Communists. 
Prime Minister Nehru claimed the islands were "ob- 
viously part of China and should be evacuated by 
the Nationalists." In recent issues of the N.Y. Times, 
other governments have made known their objec- 
tions to U.S. defense of the islands. 

Regardless of what action the U.S. might or 
might not take in the Formosa area, we ARE quite 
'involved.' The Colonel asked: "Why . . . does our 
State Department not wash its hands of the whole 
matter?" I would answer that because of obvious 
political repercussions involving U.S. promises to 
Chiang, we undoubtedly will remain "involved" "until 
death do us part!" 

Colonel Weaver also stated that, "Mr. MacLeod 
doesn't want war. Can he find any American who 
does?" What should have been clear from the very 
point of my letter was that Mr. MacLeod doesn't 
want war — over Quemoy and Matsu! Any other 
broad conclusion is erroneous. 

The Colonel is quite correct in his statement that 
"the central aim of our National Security Policy . . . 
is deterrence of Communist expansion in whatever 
form it may take." My question in this regard is 
whether Communist occupation of Quemoy and Mat- 
su should be considered "expansion" or "enroach- 
ment." And I might add that because such terms 
as these do apply to Communist activities in Berlin 
and/or Greece, it does not necessarily follow that 
they describe the entirely different Quemoy situa- 
tion. 

In a recent panel discussion on this issue, a rec- 
"ognized authority on the Far East, Provost Shannon 
McCune noted that Quemoy is just "1500 yards from 
the nearest Communist-held territory." The entire 
area in question is within two miles of the mainland. 
Therefore, because of their intolerable strategic lo- 
cation, any attempt to defend these islands would 
be extremely foolhardy. U.S. Military officials in the 
area have acknowledged that an attack on the n.itn- 
land would be necessary to the all-out defense of 
Quemoy and Matsu. Chiang must have U.S. aid to 
do this. The implications are, I believe, obvious. 

Now, I assume that a realistic approach is ex- 
pected, if ideals are ever to be realized. In this light, 
it is obvious that the U.S. cannot fail its commit- 
ments to Chiang. However, these commitments do 
not include Quemoy and Matsu. We have no moral 
obligations and certainly no strategic values in- 
volved. Formosa IS in a better strategic location 
than are the off-shore islands. From this position — 
using Colonel Weaver's analogy comparing Commu- 
nist expansion to "getting a little bit pregnant," 
perhaps we could condone an abortion — by the U.S. 
7th fleet in the Formosa straits — where there is a 
little more room than between the islands and the 
mainland.

Everybody is writing about the 
big Homecoming Weekend with 
the floats and the rallies and the 
book-burning and everything, but 
many of you are still unclear as 
to what actually takes place. 

First, out come the mothers 
and fathers with all the little 
kids. One of these cherubs will 
soon open his toothless mouth 
and say sweetly to his mother. 
"Mommy, mommy, if da floats 
don't come pretty soon, I'm 
gonna yell and scream and kick 
you in the teeth like last year!" 
Ri^ht away the mother has 
formed an intense dislike for the 
float parade. Wait, we haven't 
even started yet . . . 

Before we do start, let me re- 
mind you of the Physics Club 
meeting in Hasbrouck Audito- 
rium, Tuesday, Oct. 14 at 7 p.m. 
Prof. John D. Trimmer, Dept. 
Head, will speak on "University 
of Massachusetts Physics Depart- 
ment — Present and Future." This 
is the first in a series of lectures, 
many of which will deal with 
professional opportunities in 
physics. Everyone is invited; re- 
freshments will be served. 

Meanwhile, back in Amherst, 
the kids are screaming and the 
fathers are yelling at the 
mothers and there's no float in 
sight. Why? 

The floats are not in sight be- 
cause they have all arrived at 
North Hadley Road at the same 
time from 12 different directions. 
Horns are blowing, people are 
screaming and singing IFC and 
Pan-Hel national anthems;

everyone is still in the process 
of banging nails into the Angers 
of those who have been so foolish 
as to volunteer to hold together 
two by fours — and in the midst 
of this happy mayhem, nine red- 
coated gentlemen with tired blood 
are crying. 

And back in the sedate little 
hamlet of Amherst, 400 children 
are kicking their respective 
mothers in their teeth. 

A duck-tailed youth in a motor- 
cycle jacket turns to a compan- 
ion, who is carving his initials 
in the palm of his hand . . . 

"Hey, Mario, get da tomatoes 
ready; dem floats is comin'." 

But before any parade can be- 
gin, it is necessary that you know 
of the male tvyouts for the Smith 
College production, In the Sum- 
mer House (by Jane Bowles) 
Monday, Oct. 13 at 7:30 p.m. in 
the Students' Building Theatre 
at Smith. 



While I am at it, this week- 
end's library hours are as fol- 
lows: 
Saturday ... 8 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. 

Sunday CLOSED 

Monday 2-10 p.m. 

At this point, the floats are 
proceeding down Amity St. when 
the inevitable occurs. Someone in 
the parade screams, "Argh, it's 
raining, it's raining!" and throws 
himself under the wheels of the 
nearest trailer. 

Rain — the enemy of float 
parade*. Yon don't have to be in 
the business to know what rain 
does to paper, cardboard and 
balsa wood. Who knows this 
better than the newly-elected 
slate of officers of the Commu- 
ters' Club, namely Donald Mac- 
Intyre, '60, President; Judith 
tioodell, '62, \ ice-President; 
Mary Kay Heath, '62, Secretary; 
Henry Rastallis, '60, Treasurer; 
Gail Mowry and Stewart Ashley, 
'62, Social Chairmen; and Earla 
Mae Sawin, '60, and Louise 
Kelleher, '61, Publicity Chairmen. 

With the rain cometh the other 



annual incidents. Screaming kids 
accompanied by amazingly large 
dogs attack the flanks of the par- 
ade. Automobiles overheat and 
steam in the middle of a very 
wet North Pleasant St. Gas sta- 
tions become unusually busy, and 
many retailers are undoubtedly 
beginning to feel that maybe it 
would not h;i\ 1 . been such a had 
idea to have stayed open for the 
night. 

Someone spreads a filthy 
rumor that the Judges are stand- 
inu in front of Barsie's, so 
every group does its utmost in 
front of Barsie's — the floats do 
tricks; everybody sings, dances, 
throws candy to the kids — and 
the people in front of Barsie's 
love it, but the people in front 
of Barsie's aren't the judges. The 
judges are standing two blocks 
farther down the road — and they 
want to go home. 

Just a reminder: A formal 
operator training program for 
those interested in operating the

POWERFUL HUSKIES 
TO MEET REDMEN 




BILLY MAXWELL, Redmen 
quarterback from Mansfield, 
has completed 10 of 28 past* at- 
tempts this season for Charlie 
O'Rourke's gridsters. Maxwell 
will do plenty of throwing in 
tomorrow's important Home- 
coming game with UConn. 



Strong Union 
Squad Downs 
Footrickmen 

by DAVE GOLDSTEIN 

Tuexday, Oct .7 — The I! Mara 
cross country team lost its first 
meet in two seasons today to a 
strong Union College team, 25- 

32. 

Union scored one-two-four in 
the first five places in a very 
fast race over a hilly course. 
The lead man. Ted Hoffman of 
Union, was close to the record 
•t the three mile mark on the 
4.7 mile track. 

Atkinson Finishes 2nd 
Hoffman was 61 seconds ahead 
of Dick Atkinson, the first UMie 
scorer. Atkinson was trailed in 
the number five slot by Pete 
Conway with Jim Keelon, Don 
Medera, Emo Barron, and Joe 
Kelsey finishing in 7, 8, 9 and 
10th places. 

A week from today the Har- 
riers travel to Storrs, Conn, for 
a triangular meet with B.U. and 
UConn. 




by DICK BBESCIAN1 

A speedy and powerful Uni- 
veisity of Connecticut eleven will 
.ide the competition for 
Charlie O'Rourke's vastly-im- 
proved Redmen in tomorrow's big 
Homecoming clash at 2:00 at 
Alumni Field. 

UConn was named as the top 
team in contention for the Lam- 
bert Cup, emblematic of the 
small college football champion- 
ship of the East, in the first 
weekly balloting announced this 
week. 

The Huskies have walloped 
Springfield, 41-14, and American 
International, 55-6, while losing 
an 8-6 squeaker to Yale. Thus, 
tomorrow's game will be U Conn's 
first in the YanCon. The Huskies 
haven't lost a Conference game 
in the past two years. New 
Hampshire and Rhode Island 
held them to scoreless ties in 
1956 and '57. 

Redmen I^ead Series 

The Redmen have won 14 "i 
27 meetings with UConn, in a 
series that started in 1897. How- 
ever, the Huskies have defeated 
UMass three years in a row. The 
last UMass win came in 1954, 
when they topped UConn, 20-13 
at Storrs. 

Indication of UConn's strength 
is shown in the latest Eastern 
College Athletic Conference sta- 
tistics for small colleges. 

Second In Offense 

The Huskies rank second in 
total offense with 367 yards per 
game, and second in passing with 
137 yaids. Their passing attack 
is led by quarterback Harry 
Drivas, who leads the small col- 
leges in completions witti 17. 

Coach Bob Ingalls has a 
crackerjack center in co-captain 
Paul Scagnelli. Backs Larry Day, 
Phil DeSantis and Norm Chaban 
add good offensive speed to the 
team. 

The Redmen can't be counted 
out of the game. They have 
looked increasingly better in each 
tilt, and the 24-point first period 
against Brandeia shows our of- 
fensive potential. UConn has 
an edge in depth and speed, but 
the Redmen will enjoy a weight 
advantage in the line. 

Ready For Game 

O'Rourke's warriors are ready 

both mentally and physically for 

the important clash. At the

62 Gridders 
At Amherst 

The freshman football team 
held its first off-campus scrim- 
mage of the current season to- 
day at 4:30 when it tangled with 
the Amherst College Frosh at 
their practice field. 

The controlled scrimmage con- 
sisted of each team having the 
ball for ten minutes at a time. 

The purpose of the scrimmage 
is to give the men an opportu- 
nity to work out together and 
to perfect their plays. Naturally, 
both teams benefited from the 
action. 

AH Frosh supporters should 
note that there has been another 
game added to the team's sched- 
ule. It is with Springfield, here, 
on Saturday, October 25, at

CO-REC 
SPORTS NITE 

by AUNT RUTHIE 

The Women's Athletic Associa-

in their beautiful new building 
on October 17 when they will 
sponsor a Co- Roc Sports Night. 

The big feature of the evening 
will be the new swimming pool 
which is among the most beauti- 
ful in the East. Bathing suits 
will be provided for those who 
need them. 

Also featured in the program 
will be badminton and volley- 
ball games for those who don't 
want to swim. 

The first Co-Rec Night will 
start on Oct. 17 at 8 p.m. and 
if successful, will be a regular 
weekly affair. Gents may bring 
dates if they wish and there is 
no admission charge.

by Pete Temple 

At 2:27 of the second period, 
Kem Bawden booted home a 
goal, stopping UMass' unscored- 
on skein at 200 minutes, as Wil- 
liams defeated the Redmen, 2-0. 
The tally came off a free kick, 
which was awarded when George 
Lust, a fullback, was forced to 
catch the ball in the goal. The 
second Williams score came late 
in the fourth quarter. 

Williams Stars 

Despite the two goals scored 
on him, junior goalie Dick Wil- 
liams was great in the UMie 
net. He was called on to make 
35 saves, many of them specta- 
cular. Also excelling on defense 
were fullbacks George Lust and 
Gerry Steinberg, who blocked 
many shots before they reached 
the goal. 

The Redmen came close to 
scoring in the first period when 
Andy Psilakis sent a hard shot 
from in front, but the ball just 
missed the corner of the net. 
The only other scoring threat 
w;<s in the fourth period when 
the Kedmen peppered the Wil- 
Uum goal but to no avail.

The team plays Saturday 
morning in the big Homecoming 
game against UConn, and will be

defeat at the hands of the

UMass Receives Record Share Of Capital Outlay Budget 



Zelis Heads Senate 
For Coming Year 



by MARSHALL WRITHED '61 

In an unopposed election, Bob 
Zelis was elected president of 
the Student Senate last Wednes- 
day Bight. Hal Lane was elected 
vice-president, and Francine 
O'Donnell, secretary. The elec- 
tion of a treasurer was post- 
poned until next week. 

Dave Wilson, the only other 
candidate nominated, declined 
the nomination because of "scho- 
lastic and economic reasons". 

Zelis, Senator-at-large, served 
as chairman of the Activities 
Committee the second semester 
last year. He served as chairman 
of the Student Leader's Con- 
ference, as well as serving in 
varying capacities on the execu- 
tive and Men's Affairs Com- 
mittee. He is also a member of 
Phi Mu Delta, and was president 
of Phi Eta Sigma, scholastic 
honor society last year. 

After forty-five minutes of 
terse debate, the Senate elected 
Hal Lane as vice president. 
Senator Lane was chairman of 
the Senate Elections Committee 
last semester as well as serving 
on the RSO Committee. He also 
is vice president of Sigma Phi 
Epsilon. 

Francine O'Donnell, running 
unopposed, was re-elected secre- 
tary. Miss O'Donnell, besides 
serving as Secretary pro tern, is 
a member of the Debating So- 
ciety, and Sigma Kappa. 

The election of a treasurer was 
postponed until next week. Sena- 
tor Wilson was appointed trea- 
surer pro- tern. 

Senator Prentiss' motion to 
amend the Senate by-laws so 
that a Senator who is a candi- 
date in a current election may 
not assist in that election was 
defeated. Senator Zelis' motion 
to appropriate $90.60 to the 
UMass chapter of the American 
Society of Civil Engineers to 
send a student delegation to a 
conference at Tufts was carried.

UMass received yesterday the 
largest appropriation in its his- 
tory, 34.8$ of the Mass. Capital 
Outlay Budget. 

This amount. $9,750,000, not 
only equals state money spent tor 
buildings since the founding of 
the University in 1863 until Pres- 
ident .Mather took oflice in 1954, 
but exceeds it by one million dol- 
lars. 

The $9,750,000 was divided ir. 
the following manner: 

1. $2,000,000 for a Schooi of 
Education building and a lab 
practice school. 

2. $1,666,000 for the 3rd section 
of the Science Center, including 
plans for the fourth section. (Sec- 
tion 1 is the present Public Health 
Building, and the second section 
is now under construction.) 

3. $1,000,000 for an Infirmary. 

4. $2,339,000 for an addition to 
the Power Plant and Utility Sys- 
tem. 

5. $860,000 for an Engineering 
and Physics Shop. 



6. $20,000 for addition plans for 
the Dining Commons.

Russell, Ferguson And 
Holiday Present Jazz 



Something old, something new, 
and something blue... 

This is, in essence, the theme 
of Sunday's jazz concert at the 
Cage. The "old" ia Pee Wee 
Russell; the "new," Maynard 
Ferguson; the "blue," Billie 
Holiday. 

Tickets for the Associate 
Alumni's All-Star package show 
of jazz are on sale at the SU 
for $1.40. The concert is sched- 
uled to begin at 2:30; tickets will 
also be sold at the door. 

"A gentleman" ... "a friend" 
... "a fine musician" . . . these are 
the opinions of the trade and but 
a few of the compliments thrown 
in the way of Pee Wee Russell. 

Russell and his clarinet fall 
under the classification of "old," 
hut not old in the sense of ag<*d 
—old only in the music of which 
he is such a traditional part: the 
Chicago-New York Dixieland, 
the roots of swing. 

Leonard Feather, one of the 



world's best known jazz critics, 
has listed Russell in his History 
of Jazz as one of the "fifteen 
all time stars of jazz." 

A consistent Down Beat award 
winner and veteran trumpeter, 
young Maynard Ferguson has 
organized a 12-piece orchestra 
which has won acclaim from jazz 
critics everywhere. 

Singing the blues will be the 
inimitable "Lady Day," or if you 
prefer, Billie Holiday, whose 
lilting tones, feeling, and phras- 
ing, have created reverie for 
thousands of listeners. 

Whether your taste runs to 
Dixieland, Swing, Hop, or 
Modern, you won't want to miss 
this experience in jazz. 

Proceeds from the concert 
will he turned over to the 
Alumni-Student Contact Com- 
mittee and will be used for scho- 
larships, a career day, and lec- 
ture series.

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN. FRIDAY, OCTOBER 17, 1958 



Dear Aunt Ruthie... 

Dear Readers, . 

Here is a letter which concerns the letter from the unhappy 

coed," printed in last Wednesday's column: 

Aunt Ruthie 

Dear Aunt Ruthie, „ 

I am a campus slob and would like to answer "Lnhappy Coed. 
I would like to ask what is wrong with unpressed pants, dirty sneak- 
ers, and not shaving? Dirty sneakers are comfortable. Chinos usually 
don't stay pressed more than a day and not many guys change that 
often. As for shaving, it does look sloppy not to shave, but it is a pain 
in the neck. I'm here to study, not to hustle and I'd rather be a com- 
fortable student than a well dressed "hustler." 

Thank you, 

Comfortable Slob 

p.S. — I do shave on Monday and Tuesday for R.O.T.C. 



Dear Comf ci 'able Slob, 

College is not a place to receive only "book learning," you should 
also become socially educated. When you apply your education you 
will be coming in contact with people everyday; you, therefore, have 
to behave accordingly. Neat appearance is one of the things taken for 

granted in all walks of life. 

* Aunt Ruthie 



THE LAND OF 



mil 



by PETER 

"There are a few musicians, 
and we're lucky 'cause we have 
one, capable of stirring great 
feelings of fire." These thoughts 
were expressed by Stan Kenton 
in an analysis of his orchestra 
in "Prologue." (Cap. T383). He 
was describing the trumpet play- 
ing of Maynard Ferguson, who 
at the time of this recording was 
one of Kenton's first chair men. 

To the avid jazz fan, Fergu- 
son, along with "Cat" Anderson 
is one of the few musicians to

are now collector's items. One of 
the better examples of this is his

scribed as "piercing, jabbing

against any background as re- 
markably incomparable.

another. At the age of four he 
took up the violin and piano, and 
later he studied at the French 
Conservatory of Music. Prior to 
this study he played trumpet 
with the Black Watch Regi- 
mental Band (at the age of nine) 
and by the time he was sixteen 
he had formed his first success- 
ful group. 

His ever increasing fame 
brought him across the border to 
play with the American bands of 
Jimmy Dorsey, Boyd Raeburn, 
Charlie Barnet and of course

first place in the "Down Beat" 
poll, marking the first of three 
such victories.

Scanning The Dorms Conference 
6 * Clipboard 



by ARXIE SGAN *61 

Intramural sports are offered 
to all male students not parti- 
cipating in varsity or fraternity 
league competition. It was ex- 
pected that interest in such a 
program would be high, but 
latest reports show that only 
two dorms have entered teams 
in the Intramural Football 
League. 

One team from Mills and four 
teams from Baker comprise the 
entire league. The obvious an- 
swer is for these teams to play 
each other. This is exactly what 
the officials of the league are 
attempting to do. However, of 
the first four games scheduled, 
only one has been played and 
the others have ended in forfeits. 

Where does the fault lie? Per- 
haps with the athletic chairmen 
of the respective dorms or per- 
haps with the faculty residents 
and floor counselors who have 
shown no effort in helping with 
the organization of such teams. 

Those in charge of Intra- 
murals have asserted that they 
will attempt to complete the 
football competition and will 
offer a basketball tournament, 
but if Interest lags here also, 
there will be no intramurals for 
the rest of the year. A reminder 
that the games previously sched- 
uled for Wednesday, Oct. 8 have 
been shifted to Monday, Oct 20. 

In the only game played thus 
far, Mills downed Baker by a 
score of 18 - 7. 

Congratulations to Van Meter 
and Baker for their participation 
in the float parade. These were 
the only two men's dorms floats 
entered. Van Meter took first 
plsce.

Nursing Notes 

by BETTY KARL '60 

The Student Union was the 
scene of the District 1 Student 
Nurses' Association meeting held 
here yesterday. 

Doris Riesling, fifth-year stu- 
dent and president of the As- 
sociation presided over the meet- 
ing. Miss Mary MacDonald, 
School of Nursing instructor, 
was among members of a panel 
speaking on "Careers in Nurs- 
ing." < - 

Delegates from the eight mem- 
ber schools of nursing of the 
District, including the U of M 
School attended. 

In addition to having Miss 
Kiesling as president of the 
District, UMass has gained other 
honors in the Association. Last 
spring Lois Aggerup, one of our 
graduates, was chosen to repre- 
sent the District as "Student 
Nurse of the Year."

The Yankee Conference Cham- 
pionship will probably be decided 
this weekend at Storrs, Connec- 
ticut when Maine's surprising 
Black Bears meet UConn, last 
year's co-champs. 

Coach Hal Westerman's Maine 
team has rolled over four Yan- 
Con foes, although its victory 
over Vermont does not count in 
the standings. They have de- 
feated Massachusetts, Rhode Is- 
land, and New Hampshire in 
league play. 

In the Huskies, they will be 
facing one of the most power- 
full small college teams in the 
East. The UConns scored lop- 
sided wins over Springfield and 
AIC, and came close to upsetting 
Yale. Last Saturday, they won 
their first conference game when 
they edged out UMass. 

Rhode Island, co-champs with 
UConn last year, will be fighting 
to stay in contention as they 
take on the Redmen at Kingston 
tomorrow. The Rams defeated 
New Hampshire and lost to 
Maine. The Redmen will be 
seeking their first conference 
win. 

New Hampshire, still looking 
for its first victory of the sea- 
son, has the difficult assignment 
of entertaining Delaware at 
Durham and Vermont is at 
Rochester, N.Y., for a game with 
the University of Rochester.

Asking 1000 
Adults To Vote 

In less than three weeks, state elections 
will be here again. Over 1000 students at 
the University are old enough to vote. How 
many of them will? 

It would be trite to reiterate the im- 
portance of voting. There should be no need 
for a college publication to exhort its sub- 
scribers to fulfill their duty to vote. 

The Student Senate has spent a consider- 
able amount of money, your money, to make 
it easy for the thousand to cast their ballots. 

A member of the student body has spent 
a considerable amount of time and money 
to set up this program. Everything has been 
done to help them cast their votes in the 
election. 

All the eligible voters have to do is pick 
up an application for an absentee ballot 
from any student senator, the lobby desk 
at the Student Union, or from Ted Sheerin, 
chairman of the Student Senate Ad Hoc 
Committee on Absentee voting. Fill out the 
card and mail it to the town or city clerk 
in the individual's respective home town. 

When the absentee ballot arrives in the 
mail, it should be brought to the Notary 
Public who will be provided for you by the 
Senate, which meets every Wednesday eve- 
ning in the Senate Chambers of the Student 
Union. 

After the ballot has been marked in his 
presence he will notarize it and prepare it 
to be mailed back to the individuals' home 
town. 

It seems rather simple doesn't it! The 
Collegian urges this group of 1000 to vote. 

Every vote will be important in this 
year's election. It's your duty to keep the 
state from becoming Taxachusetts, a state 
which some people think has already arrived.

"Athletics Must Be Recognized" 




by NORM MICHAUD * 

Editor's note: This column by Mr. Michaud does not necessarily 
reflect the opinions of the Collegian. 

Homecoming week. Do some of you remember? Two years ago? 
UConn's Huskies visited us on this important weekend and demon- 
strated their superiority to say the least. 

Things have changed since then. Our athletic program has be- 
come more active and there is no reason whatsoever why this should 
not have occurred. The shouting that went on at first led one to think 
that UMass was trying to make the "top ten" in the country. Not 
so. The object has simply been to raise our team to the caliber of the 
rest of the Yankee Conference. Evidence that this is being accom- 
plished has been obvious in the three games we have played so far. 
I see no reason not to believe that sometime in the future UMass 
will become active among the major schools in the East. 

Athletics must be recognized as an important part of the campus 
atmosphere. It is an aid to cementing relationships between two schools. 
Moreover, the success or failure of a team has a strong influence on 
campus morale and spirit. It can be one of the modes by which the 
students are drawn closer together and the campus as a whole 
strengthened. 



Through A Glass, Darkly 



by IAN McLURE 

Many have asked me the secret of writing good academic prose. 
"How," they ask, "can we give our term papers and lab reports the 
same stupefying quality we find in our textbooks and in the journals?" 
Inspired by their queries, I have set down a few simple rules. By ad- 
hering strictly to them, anyone of moderate intelligence can write 
prose with professional obscurity. 

To write academic prose successfully, one must understand the 
reasons for its peculiar style. The ostensible purpose of good Pedantic 
is the presentation of facts as briefly and unemotionally as possible. 
This justifies leaving out, on the ground of frivolity, any analogy or 
any reference to a similar phenomenon which might possibly clarify 
the subject in the reader's mind. The real purpose is the creation of 
awe in the reader, by presenting the ideas of the author as the results 
of the operation of a vast, supernatural intellect. The method is easy. 
The following rules are infallible: 

1. Shun the simple declarative sentence. Do not say, "A pro- 
duces B." Say instead, "Pending the receipt of further evidence, it 
may be safe to assume that the theory of A being concerned in the 
production of B is tenable, at least for the present." This sounds much 
loftier, and if it is later proved that A does NOT produce B, you have 
already weaseled out of an uncomfortable error. 

2. Employ the passive voice. "Pandemonium sulphate was ad- 
ministered to the animal." absolves you of all responsibility. Other- 
wise the reader might think you had a hand in it. 

8. A double negative equals a positive. "The theory is not incon- 
sistent with the facts." means the same as, "The theory fits the facts." 
looks grander, and takes up more space. 

4. NEVER use the first person. "I" or "we" is rigidly excluded. 
If you MUST refer to yourself, write "the author" or "the ox peri 
menter." The reader may think it was smeone else. 

5. Technical terms are always preferable to ordinary language. 
The reader will remember your work longer if he must look up every 
other word. If there are several synonyms for a term, choose the least 
favored. In this way, even an experienced reader may be thrown off 
the scent. 

6. Footnotes. A word of caution here. A footnote should have 
some visible connection to the matter at hand, otherwise the reader 
may skip it. However, there is always the risk that an injudicious 
footnote may accidentally clarify your carefully muddled argument. 

7. References. The more the merrier. A particularly good trick 
is the inclusion of references to bl found in ubtXU'l journals in a 
foreign language. These can be cribbed. Hardly MM reader in a hun- 
dred CAN check uji on you. and of these, hardly one in a thousand 

WHL 

Hy following these rules faithfully, you will cotiwnund i i i< lily 
confused style. Talleyrand said that language was given us to conceal 
naked thoughts. Pedantic was given us to conceal naked facts. 



Rayner Rumblings 

by LARRY RAYNER '61 

Last Wednesday, while quietly walking by the 
Collegian office, I overheard the following conversa- 
tion: "We've got to have a new column, Bob, and it 
has got to be humorous." 

"Sure, but who in the devil is going to write 
it?" 

It was at this point that I stopped and glanced 
into the office for a second. (My first mistake.) For 
as I began to continue on my way, these two real 
gone looking characters came charging out and 
grabbed me. I was really scared for a minute be- 
cause I'd heard stories about the real weirdies that 
worked on papers. My fears I can see now, were 
well founded. 

While the first was holding me, the second asked, 
"How would you like to write for the paper?" 

"Are you kidding?" I replied, "I can't write,, 
worth a dam." 

The smaller, balding guy then said, "What'd you 
get in English?" 

"B," I replied, still trying to figure these char-» 
acters out. 

"Great," he answered. "Dan, (that was the name 
of the big guy with the crazy look in his eyes) meet 
our new columnist." 
"Now wait a . . ." 

"Bring bin in the office, and we'!! te!! him wh«* 
we want him to do," says the bald guy. So here I 
am. 

Now, for those of you who have followed me this 
far, I felt that I owe you a favor. This is a real 
hot tip, so don't tell anybody about it. 

It seems that about a month ago, I was "Infirm- 
arized", and while I was there, I made a most val- 
uable discovery, namely, that the food there is real- 
ly great. I've eaten in all three dining halls on cam- 
pus and I never came across six consecutive meala 
that were completely edible. Believe it or not, it ac- 
tually happened to me in the infirmary ... I ate 
six consecutive edible meals. 

Now I don't want to start a stampede, but one 
of the muses told me that it's best to go now and 
avoid the rush at finals. 



EDITOR'S MAILBOX 

Bargains In The Hatch? 

To the Editor: 

As a special item of interest to the student body, 
we would like to point out the "savings" they are 
getting when they buy a "specLal" in the "Cold 
Foods Line" in the Hatch. A "special" is considered 
by the majority of restauranteurs to be a menu 
which has been made up to offer a savings to the 
public However, this word appears to have a differ- 
ent connotation in the Hatch. We think one sample 
will suffice to prove our point. 

On Wednesday, Oct. 8, 1958, the "special" of- 
fered was the following: 

1. A hum-salad sandwich 

2. A cup of soup 

3. Potato chips 

All this for $.50! Now if we look at the cost of 
these items separately we will discover that a ham- 
salad sandwich costs 25 cents, a bowl of soup is 
1> cents, and a /*tcAa</.' of potato chips is 10 cents, 
which according to our calculations adds up to 
o0 cents. The difference with the special, however, 
is that instead of a Ixiwl of soup, you receive a cup, 
and insteud of a package of chips, you only get a 
few potato chips. 

Or in other words, you pay the same for the 
".special", and you receive legs than what you would 
if you bought each item separately.

Adelphia Ups Requirements 



T<> raise the academic standard 
of the University, and to promote 
an added impetus toward 
achievement of higher academic 
levels among male students, Adel- 
phia has established a scholastic 
requirement of 2.1 as of the end 
of this fall's semester. 

Robert Betts '59, president of 
the senior men's honor society, 
gave mention to the Adelphian 
agreement that the scholastic re- 
quirement be raised .1 of a point 
each year, until a 2.4 average re- 
quirement is reached. "From 
there, whether or not they pro- 
ode higher will be up to the 
Adelphians of that year," added 
Betts. 

Speaking for the other Adel- 
phians as well. Beta remindB 



male students that although 
some of the outstanding members 
of this year's junior class may 
be affected by the new procedure, 
that, in the long run, the estab- 
lishment of a required average 
will lead to the development of a 
better and more fully-developed 
Adelphia; one which Betts feels 
will more aptly fit the title of 
senior men's "honor society." 

Junior men are reminded that 
the average taken into account 
for Adelphia will be the individ- 
uals cumulative <ir<m.</< at the 
end of the fall semester in his 
junior year. Whatever mark an 
individual may reach at mid- 
semester of the spring semester 
will not be considered in the final 
tally.

Altitudes Change About Overweight 



The American attitude about 
overweight has changed in re- 
cent times. Once it was thought 
to be a reasonable indication of 
good health. Now it is widely 
accepted as an unhealthful on- 
dition. 

Some believe that the parti- 
cular interest women have in 
controlling weight has been 
baaed more on fashion and 
beauty than on health reasons. 
However. Harriet Wright, Ex- 
tension nutrition expert at the 
University, points out that there 
•re many health reasons that 
have helped bring about attitude 
changes.

"It is evident that obesity is 
a condition to be avoided," says 
Miss Wright. "There are many 
differences of opinion concern- 
ing the treatment of obesity once 
it exists, but there seems to be 
no difference of opinion about 
the need to prevent it." 

Overweight may also repre-

BOOTERS DROP TWO 



by PRE TEMPLE 

This past week the UMass 
Boccer team suffered two of their 
Wont defeats at the hands of 
the University. «»f Connecticut 
and Amherst College. 

aurday morning, the UConn 
soccer team started early to 
wreck Homeeoming weekend. The 
Huskies outhustled, outplayed, 
and outscored the Redmen for a 
devasting, 8-1, victory. The 
lone bright point for the Umies 
was Paul Mailman's second period 
goal, which prevented a shutout. 

Bow To Amherst 

Things looked very familiar 
Tuesday afternoon, as Amherst, 
led by Pete Van Dentorn, who 
scored five times, blasted out a 
similar 8 - 1 win. This time it 
was Fred Walker who saved the 
Redmen from being shutout, 
booting home his first goal of 
the season. 

The immediate outlook for the 
lx.oters is dismal indeed. They 



rtained the Trinity soccer 
team here this afternoon at 
3:00. Hie Hilltoppers are re- 
garded by many as the top team 
in the nation. As one of the 
UMass players put it, "They're 
better than UConn and Amherst 
combined." 



GAME BROADCAST 

Tomorrow's Yankee Confer- 
ence football game at Kings- 
ton, R.I., between the UMass 
Redmen and the Rhode Island 
Rams will be broadcast over 
WMUA. Game time is 2:00 
and air time is 1:50. Hal Dut-

The Rams from Rhode Island 
have rebounded after a slow- 
start. The Rams took pastmgs 
from Northeastern and Maine on 
successive Saturdays before de- 
feating New Hampshire and 
Brandeis to even their record at 
2-2. They stand at 1-1 in the 
Conference. 

Last year Rhode Island fin- 
ished in a surprising tie with 
UConn for the Conference crown. 
The two teams battled to a score- 
less deadlock in their meeting. 
The Rams were thus given high 
season ratings, but line trouble 
brought about their downfall in 
the early season contests. It now 
appears that coach Herb Maack 
has his forward wall straight- 
ened out.

Strong Backfield 
Rhody's strength lies in its 
backfield unit, led by junior 
quarterback Reg Pearson. He'i 
backed up by junior fullback Bill 
Poland and sophomore flash John 
Rollins. Pearson and Poland 
were all-Conference selections a 
year ago, while Rollins ha 
a consistent ground gainer all 

fall. 

UMass lost to Maine, 19-6, and 
bopped Brundeis, 3tM4, while the 
Rams fell before the Black 
Bears, 86-7 and trampled the 
Judges, 52-22. 

Series Started 1903 
The series between the two 
state universities started back in 
1908. The Redmen won the first 
four games, holding the Rams 
scoreless each time. But since 
L936) our warriors have defeated 
Rhody just twice, in 1949 and 
1951. 

It's amazing but it's true. The 
Rams have decisioned us 16 
times in the last 18 meetings, in- 
cluding a current streak of six 



straight trine. Thus, the Redmen 
, won 10, tost 80 and tied 

two against I'Ul. 

CM;;- i' Up plent y of 

yardage on the ground tomor- 
row, .specially if Buzz Richard- 
son and Tom Delnickas are in 
running form. The latest sta- 
tistics show that the opposition 
has outrushed us, 921 yards to 
4:!»'>. But the Rams' line doesn't 
rank with those of Boston Uni- 
versity and Connecticut. 

Buzz Top Gainer 

Richardson has netted 165 
yards m 42 carries, while Del- 
nickas has gained 109 on 39 
carries. Gerry Walls has the 
!m si rushing average, 4.3, based 
on 96 yards on 22 carries. 

Tomorrow's game will be a 
tough one for the Redmen, but 
they should win. However, the 
next two games, with surprising 
Northeastern and dangerous Del- 
aware, will be even tougher. 
Therefore, by roasting the Rams, 
the Redmen will be in the proper 
mental attitude for the stretch 
run of the schedule.

Hockey appeared on the sports 
pages during the past week as 
the National Hockey League 
opened up shop. From now till 
the Stanley Cup Playoffs next 
March, the six teams will be 
battling on the rinks. 

We're picking the talent laden 
Montreal Canadiens to pave the 
way once again. They may 
stumble along during the regular 
season, but when the chips are 
down watch out! 

NBA To Start Soon 

Another National Basketball 
Association season is just around 
the comer. The Celtics will meet 
the Cincinnati Royals in an ex- 
hibition tilt in Chicopee this 
Saturday. 

Two rookies to watch this 
year are Guy Rodgers of Temple 
and Elgin Baylor of Seattle. 
Rodgers will be with the Phila- 
delphia Warriors and Baylor 
joins the Minneapolis Lakers. 
Gridiron Glints 

The Black Knights of the 
Hudson unleased their ferocious 
new offense against the Fighting 
Irish Saturday and came away 
tattered but still unscathed. 

Dawkins, Anderson, and Com- 
pany led Army to a 14-2 vic- 
tory over Notre Dame in the 
thirty-sixth renewal of their 
ancient rivalry. 

The series, resumed last year 



after a ten year lapse, has once 
again been halted temporarily. 
The earliest possible date that 
they'll clash again is 1964. It's 
too bad since this game creates 
tremendous interest among fans 
everywhere. 

Homecoming Slants 
UConn evened up the series 

with their victory Saturday. We 

have now dropped four straight 

to the Huskies. 

Our offense showed a poor 156 

in total yardage compared to the 

visitors' 363. 

The scene shifts to Kingston 

and Meade Field this week as 

the Redmen tangle with Rhode 

Island.

Joyce To Talk 

On U.S. And 
Disarmament 

Should the United States seize 
the lead in Atomic Disarma- 
ment? 

This question will bring James 
Avery Joyce to campus, Thurs., 
October 23, at 8 \>.m. in the 
Senate Chambers of the S. U. 

Joyce, a liberal, is a British 
author, barrister, economist and 
educator. He was a former con- 
sultant to the United Nations 
Economic and Social Council and 
has served on the International 
Labor Office staff in Geneva. 

Under the auspices of the 
American Friends (Quaker) Ser- 
vice Committee and the Univer- 
sity Debating Society, Joyce will 
consider current proposals to 
control the "greatest power ever 
held by man." 

Having traveled in Nehru's 
India, in the Middle East, and in 
his native England, Doctor Joyce 
is qualified to present the impact 
of Atomic Disarmament as it is 
felt in all free nations.

Stars Fail To Show 



by PETER MUNROE '59 

"Something old, something 
new, and something blue", turned 
out to be "something new and 
something borrowed", at The All 
Star Jazz Concert in the cage 
Sunday afternoon. Much to the 
dismay of the Alumni Associa- 
tion (who must be commended 
for their tremendous effort) Pee 
Wee Russell and Billy Holiday 
were unable to perform. The de- 
tails of these cancellations were 
not disclosed. 

Filling in for the Pee Wee 
Russell group was a substitute 
group headed by Johnny Wind- 
hurst on trumpet, backed by such 
old-iimers as Bud Freeman on 
tenor and Johnny Vine on drums. 
Th.- group did their best to pre- 
sent some New York — Chicago 
style music for the Dixie-land 
enthusiasts, but a general feeling 
of disappointment was prevalent 
v hen Russell and Miss Holiday 

fatted to show. 

The afternoon's mainstay was 
the versatile group headed by 
jazzdom's "ultra-sonic" trumpet 
player, Maynnrd Ferguson. Dis 



playing a clear understanding 
of modern interpretation and ar- 
langing, this group contained 
sidemen that truly bring justice 
to the trumpet of Mr. Ferguson. 
The group featured Bill Ch;. 
Gerry Tyree, and Bob Zattola on 
trumpet; Jimmy Ford, Carmen 
Leggio, Willie Maiden, and John 
Lanni on Saxes; Frank Dunlop 
on drums, and Jimmy Rowser on 
bass. 

The concert was opened by 
the Ferguson group doing a 
number titled "Groover Wailin!". 
This piece was a fast, swinging 
tune that featured the high-note 
trumpet work of Maynard. Get- 
ting underway in the first set, 
the group matched wits with the 
pen of Willie Maiden on a roll- 
icking tune called "Tag Team". 
This Maiden arrangement was 
done for two valve trombones 
and two tenor saxes. With Feig- 
n-on featured on trombone, this 
number was reminiscent of the 
J. J. Johnson-Kai Winding sound 
of a few years ago.

Ground Broken For ROTC 
Armory By Reserve General 
And Philippine Dignitaries 

Early Friday morning Major General Sidney C. 
WooU'ii, Commanding General of the 13th Reserve U.S. 
Army Corps, and three officers' from the Philippine Army 
arrived on campus to break ground for the new ROTC ar- 
mory and to tour the ROTC facilities at the 1 University. 

They "dropped in" by means of a helicopter which was 
landed on the lawn beside the _^__^__ 



SU for several hours. 

The new building will be erect- 
ed at a cost of $420,000 and will 
house the Army ROTC and the 
Department of Air Science class 
looms, offices, supply storage, 
and an indoor rifle range. 

An honor guard of "Bay State 
Rifles," the armor ROTC pre- 
cision drill team, greeted the 
helicopter and its occupants: 
tour director, Major Carl M. 
Brady; Major Charles Bruce, 
Asst. G3, 13th Corps; and Phil- 
ippine army officers Lt. Col. 
Alvard Siewert, Maj. Virgilid 
Almeda, and Capt Antenor 
Rogue. 

After inspecting the honor 
guard, the dignitaries were 



served refreshments in the office 
of Colonel James Weaver, Com- 
manding Officer of the ROTC 
detachment at the University. 
They then proceeded to the En- 
|limnrlng Building where they 
witnessed a class in military map 
reading. 

Before returning to the heli- 
copter for the trip to Westover 
Air Force Base, the officers met 
with provost Shannon McCune, 
who welcomed them on behalf of 
the administration of the Uni- 
versity. 

General Wooten will also pre- 
sent a DOD award to the East- 
ern States Farmers Exchange at 

Springfield.

can^weIudge? 

A man isn't born ; he is made. He is born 
completely helpless - putty in the hands of 
those who raise him. A child may be raised to 
believe that black is white; that day is night. 
II.. ma\ be taught that there is no God, or 
that some men are, by their nature better 
than others. Then suddenly the child is no 
longer a child — he is a man, and he has 
reason. Perhaps his reason balks at the 
things he has been raised to believe, but 
how many men are strong enough to follow 
their reason and rebel against the things 
that they haw been taught since their earl- 
iest recollection? How powerful the person 
who raises a child is! 

How main times people who have been 
raised in the belief that no man is by his very 
nature better than another have been heard 
to condemn the segregationist who has been 
rained to believe that because he is white he 
is better than the negro. These people fail 
to realize that these segregationists are not 
unlike themselves. They are trying to do 
what is right but are caught in a conflicting 
situation. Their reason tells them that per- 
haps the non-segregationist who believi-s that 
all men are equal have a point; their own 
basii- learning tells them that they are better 
and therefore should have more rights than 
those of another race. Perhaps they are not 
strong enough to follow their own reason- 
ing, or perhaps they have merely ignored 
this reasoning altogether. 

Who are we to condemn this type of Seg- 
regationist? Of course we believe that their 
attitude is wrong, but the problem is not so 
simple as it may appear. Such men cannot 
be expected to change suddenly and conform 
with the beliefs of others when told that 
their beliefs are wrong. They will rebel. They 
cannot be forced to change. Unless the Amer- 
ican people realize this the segregation prob- 
lem will continue to be a great disgrace to 
America as a democratic country.

THIS TEKEISUS SEES 



There is too much noise in the clfatsroom nowadays. Th«' poOJ pro- 
fessor is slowly becoming overwhelmed by tha •pontamity, the en- 
thusiasm, the b the violent battles among students who 
wish to offer their opinions m the questions posed by their master. 
A .rtudont has trouble thinking in such a noisome atmosphere. I sub- 
mit a request that it stop immediately so that we can get on with our 
learning. 

Everyone know- that to offer a wrong opinion looks foolish, and 
it would behoove us to never <>pen our mouths until we are absolutely 
certain that our opinion will stand the test of time and thai our ques- 
tion is <>f suprem> value to everyone in the classroom. All too fre- 
quently do 1 hear false opinions and foolish questions aimed at the 
profeuor whose life is becoming miserable. 

The grand and glorious solution to this reprehensible situation 
ia to turn in at the beginning of the period a list of all opinions and 
questions that will pop into a student's mind during the hour. The 
professor will be able to run through them in a few minutes and there 
can be no doubt as to his omniscience which will suffice to correct our 
false views and irrelevant questions. 

This procedure will decrease the excessive amount of student-pro- 
fessor participation which I notice is ruining the academic atmosphere 
of our worshipful university which sits in the hand of ... . 

Another terrible thing which fortunately I do not see often is 
that surreptitious and traitorous practice of talking to the professor 
after class. This leads to the horrible danger of expressing different 
views which no professor can tolerate having already rejected as in- 
valid everything we think. Worst of all it exposes our ignorance and 
stupidity to which all students must never admit at any time or in any 
place. We already know everything in this life or would not be here. 
I know I shall reap great benefits in this life for the timely warning; 

silence is golden.

RE: THE MYTH OF NUCLEAR WAR 



To the Editor: 

The brutal comparison of the 
British Labor Party to Red Com- 
munism once again showed how 
ill-informed Mr. Merino is about 
political affairs. 

The Laborites are the cham- 
pions of Christian morality. 
What they have achieved in 
Britain could not have been done 
by the Communists and their 
revolution. 

In the words of Laski, the 
purpose of Fabian Socialism "is 
to safeguard and foster all those 
relations which enable man to 
BE HIMSELF at his BEST." 
This means that individual free- 
dom, economic security and so- 
cial justice, (which the Fabians 
have combined) are inseparable, 
synonymous and essential to man 
if he is to "be himself." 

This conception of a new and 
dynamic society, (where men are 
nurtured to the principles of 
freedom and democracy, where 
men are free of economic fears 
and anxieties) has been inspiredj 



by humanitarians (Shaw, Woolf, 
Webb, MacDonald, Laski, Wells, 
Attlee) who possess a profound 
feeling for their fellow men. 13 
this a view of man "as a herd 
of cattle"? Obviously, he can- 
not distinguish between a demo- 
cratic society and a totalitarian 
one. 

The Christian view of morality 
is a co-operative one, and does 
not this view fit the philosophy 
of the Fabians? What is his 
view of Christian morality? 

He need not fret over the idea 
that the British might relinquish 
their freedom in order to save 
themselves. That is as likely as 
a Communist turning Capitalist. 

I entreat Mr. Merino to be- 
come familiar with the aims and 
views of Fabian Socialism and 
to reconsider his attack. When 
he has done this, I feel that he 
cannot help but admire them, or 
perhaps he may even embrace 
them, just as the Conservatives 

have done.

OPEN LETTER TO UNIVERSITY COMMUNITY 

Extensive medical research has so greatly increased the need 
for blood that the facilities for obtaining enough blood to meet all 
these needs are not adequate. With the aid of the American Red Cross 
an annual blood drive was instituted seven years ago to give students 
and faculty members of the university an opportunity to help this 
worthy cause. 

The goal of this program is to provide enough blood to anyone in 
the country who may need it without charge. Through Lhis program 
blood is most readily available to meet the daily needs of the com- 
munities in which it serves and is also used to help communities 
crippled by disaster. 

The college student is a potential blood donor of great importance. 
He is healthy, vigorous, and aware of the problems in the world about 
him, and may readily assume the responsibility of donating blood as 
a part of his education. 

All university students, faculty members and their families are 
.eligible to receive blood without charge as a benefit of this Campus 
K igious Council sponsored blood drive. 

The select inn of the donor and actual transfusion are handled 
by well trains! personnel. The donation of a pint of blood is not a 
painful or uncomfortable experience. 

Til- NMM of thi* blood! dn\e is in your hands. Won't you help 
put thin di " top?

m OBLIGATION 8 
TO TOMORROW J 

This is the eighth installment of an article writ- 
ten by Dr. Albert Schweitzer reprinted from the 
Saturday Review. 

Attention was drawn to this danger by the 
American General Curtis LeMay. Quite recently 
the world found itself in such a situation. The radar 
station of the American Air Force and American 
Coastal Command indicated that an invasion of 
unidentified bombers was on the way. Upon this 
warning, the general who was in command of the 
strategic bomber force ordered that reprisal bom- 
bardment should be made. However, realizing that 
he was taking a great responsibility, he hesitated. 
Shortly afterwards, it was pointed out that the 
radar stations had committed a technical error. 
What could have happened if a less balanced gen- 
eral had been in his place! 

In th» future audi dangers are likely to in- 
crease. Owing to the fact that small rockets exist 
which pass through the air with terrific speed and 
are over the target within a few minutes^ — defense 
possibilities become very limited. Only seconds re- 
main to identify the markings on the radar screen, 
so that the counter-attack can spring into being. 
The theoretical defense consists in sending out 
missiles to explode the attacking missiles of the en- 
emy before they complete their job. and also in re- 
leasing bombers with a view to destroying the ramps 
from which they are launched. 

Such split-second operations cannot be left to the 
human brain. It, works too slowly. The job has 
therefore been entrusted to an electronic brain.

It '8 Greek 
To Me 

by MIKE KLKINKKMAN '61 

With the added incentive of 
winning IFC points, the fraterni- 
ties displayed a great amount of 
ingenuity and originality in the 
Homecoming Week End float pa- 
rade. The first three places in 
this event went to QTV, Phi Sig, 
and Theta Chi respectively. 

• Although the campus was 
given a good sample of the cap- 
abilities of the various houses in 
the parade, the fraternitiea will 
have an even better chance to 
show just what they can do in 
the forthcoming IFC skits. For 
these plays will demonstrate the 
ability of the different houses to 
unite and, as one body, provide 
an evening's entertainment. 

The program will take place 
this Saturday, Oct. 25, at 7:00 
p.m. With thirteen of the four- 
teen fraternities participating, 
the houses will be very well rep- 
resented. They have been re- 
hearsing quite regularly, and 
nothing short of great perform- 
ances can be expected. Each 
house puts on a seven minute 
skit and, after all the fraterni- 
ties have performed, the judges 
announce the three best. Such 
aspects as acting, lighting, sets, 
and stage direction are con- 
sidered. So why not make plans 
to see the Greeks at their best?

program towards its climax, the 
group featured the arranging 
tal.mts of "Slido" Hamoton as 
they "see-sawed" their way 
through "My Man Chopin." This 
composition started with a 
Chopin-like introduction and then 
increased tempo before reverting 
back to Mr. Chopin. The entire 
group put their "all" into this 
one, and audience appreciation 
was apparent. 

The Windhurst group filled in 
the second part of the show with 
such numbers as "South Rampart 
Street Parade", "Squeeze Mi" 
(an old Fats Waller tune), and 
"Royal Garden Blues." Bud Free- 
man was exceptional during this 
short set, and it might be said 
that he kept this grcup together. 
After a she^i intermission, the 
Ferguson band came back as 
many of the disappointed fans 
began to drift out. Those that 
remained were thrilled by the 
high-note trumpet work of Fer- 
guson on "Over The Rainbow." 
A haunting ballad in its own 
right, this number took on new 
color as Maynard screamed his 
way to a crescendo ending. 

The Ferguson group obliged 
the audience by fetching Janet 
King, their previously absent 
vocalist. Miss King, with the 
group only a few weeks, was 
featured on "Great Scott," "I 
Fall In Love Too Easily", and 
"You Brought A New Kind of 
Love To Me". Janet's style was 
fresh and her interpretation and 
phrasing was exceptional. Her 
tonal quality reminded one of 
the great June Christy.

of "Inherit the Wind", by Law- 
rence and Lee. 

The director, Henry B. Peirce,

play itself is based on the Scopes'

any species will do.

MR. M. E. ANDERS 
% HOUSE OF WALSH 
AMHERST, MASS. 

Dear Mr. Anders, 

You may remember me from my letters of some 
days ago. It is remarkable how much several weeks 
of dating can do for a girl here at Myth College. Let 
me tell you what has developed since I last wrote. I 
have met (by devious means perhaps, but met) eleven 
Adverse boys and nine U.Massive boys, since that day 
each of them has asked me for a date. I have bought 
an entirely new wardrobe, had a permanent wave, 
changed my schedule so that I have no classes before 
ten o'clock in the morning, and my last is on Wednes- 
day at noon, used three of my overnights, and all my 
special lates (six). 

Why do you think I'm getting this attention from 
so many boys? I mean, back at the cattle ranch (at 
least it was a cattle ranch before they discovered oil) 




in Yates Center, Kansas, the boys didn't even look at 
me. Of course I didn't meet very many of them, because 
daddy said that they all had colds most of the time, and 
he didn't want me to get sick or something. 

Now when I arrive here, all at once everyone is 
asking me for dates (that's a funny word, I never had 
a 'date' before I came East). One of them said I re- 
minded him of Annie in "Oklahoma," and I said that 
was funny, because I used to live in Oklahoma, but he 
explained that he meant the movie rather than the 
state. 

Speaking of movies, you all have the neatest movie 
houses around here, where you go to them in cars. You 
would never believe it, but nearly every bey who has 
asked me out has taken me to see a show there. They 
are fun, but what do you do when the windshield gets 
all fogged up? 

Thank you for your advice, Dear M.E. I'll be writ- 
ing again soon. 

Love, 

Constantly 

Hrought to you by House of Walsh, 
fittest clothes for man or maid.

Rams Rap Redmen 24-8; 
UMass Fumbles Costly 

by TED RAYMOND 

Kingston, R.I.. Oct. is -l-'-l'-M-b-L -1 spelled defeat for the Redmen today as the 
Rams capitalized on the UMass mistakes to grab a 24-8 win at Meade Field. 

Four times UMass went on the march and were stopped inside the Rums' !0 vard 
thrice by fumbles and once on a great goal line stand that found Rhody taking over the pigskin 
on downs on their own 1 foot line. 

The Rams scored their first 



Rhodv 



line. 



touchdown midway through the 
second quarter on a 95 yard drive 
with Roger Pearson going over 
on a keeper play from the five. 

The Redmen had driven 85 
yards to the R.I. five and with 
second down and five to go for 
the score they bobbled the ball 
and the Rams came up with it. 

Redmen Threaten 

Pearson pulled off a daring 
pass from his end zone to end 
Jack MacDonald to get the Rams 
out of the danger zone. 

Before the end of the half, the 
Redmen threatened again but 
once more they were thwarted 
by fumblitis inside the Rhody 10. 

The Rams came up with their 
second tally on an interception in 
the third period. 

Jack MacDonald intercepted 
for the Rams at the midfield 
■tripe and lateral led to Don 
Brown as he was going down. 
Brown gathered in the ball, cut 
laterally between several tacklers 
and sped down the left side to 
paydirt. 

Rams Roll 

Early in the final stanza the 
Redmen were forced to punt 
from their own end zone and the 
ball went out of bounds on the 
80. 

The Rams capitalized once 
again on a break and rolled over 
in five playa for their final score 
with George Peck banging over 
from the two. 



The Redmen finally got on the 
scoreboard on their next series 
of plays with Gerry Walls taking 
a pass from Bill Maxwell for 
the TD covering 48 yards as 
Gerry outraced the Ram defend- 
ers down the left sideline and 
dove into the end zone. 

UMass kept fighting to get 
into the ball game. They grabbed 
the pigskin on an interception 
and moved 70 yards to the Ram 
goal line but couldn't push it 
across and the Rams took over 
on their own 1 foot line. 



Richardson Travels 

Buzz Richardson ground 
yardage on 



out 
most of the yardage on the 
march with a Maxwell to Harry 
Williford pass that covered 30 
yards setting the ball on the 
Ram five. The Redmen banged on 
the door four times but the Rams 
held them off. 

Reserve quarterback Dick Bax- 
ter made two daring calls that 
enabled the Rams to keep pos- 
session of the ball and stop the 
Redmen from getting another

chance to score. 

On fourth down with four 
yards to go on their own 10, Hal 
LaRoche went back to kick but 
instead of booting the ball he 
took off around his own right 
end and made the all-important 
first down that kept the Rams 
in possession. 

Four plays later, the Rams 
were still short of another first 
down and once again Baxter took 
a chance and sent Bill Peck up 
the middle. Peck made the yard- 
age and the Rams kept the ball 
for another four downs as the 
clock was running out. 

The Redmen took over on 
downs on the next series and 
moved back into scoring position 
but the clock ran out and the 
Rams had earned a stunning 24-8 
upset.

duction "Inherit The Wind," with his assistants John Watson '61 
and Robert Williams of Amherst. Mr. Watson and Mr. Williams 
also helped Mr. Peirce produce last year's Roister Doister hits, 
"Teahouse of The August Moon" and "The Matchmaker." Pro-

Girls, now you can call your 
Princeton boyfriends, thanks to 
the Princeton University Student 
Answering Service. 

Last year only Princeton stu- 
dents and their families could 
subscribe, and thus be sure of 
contacting their boys. 

It soon developed, however, 
that most of the calls were 



from girls trying to accept or 
reject bids to Princeton func- 
tions. The P.U.S.A.S. decided to 
enlarge their services to include 
college girls.

I.F.C. Gives 

Fraternity 

Social Prob. 

Theta Chi fraternity has been 
placed on social probation by the 
Interfraternity Council Judiciary 
Board. 

"The reason for this action 
was the breaking of the I.F.C. 
code, that there shall be no 
female guests in a fraternity 
house after 12:30 p.m. on a 
Saturday night," stated Bob 
Myers, I.F.C. vice president. 

On the Saturday of Home- 
coming Weekend Theta Chi 
sponsored an Alumni party. 
Myers stated that later on in 
the evening some of the alumni 
and their guests were reluctant 
to leave. 

They were discovered in this 
unfortunate situation by the 
Dean of Men. "And thereby 
comes the result," says Meyers. 

Theta Chi has been placed on 
social probation from October 27 
to January 20. 

This prohibits the house from 
participating in any Intramural*, 
having female guests, and going 
to any other fraternity social 
functions. 

The members may participate 
in any university function, how- 
ever. 



Preparations have been start <nl for organizing this 
year's Intramural Debating Tournament which will be con- 
ducted early next semester to give students an opportunity 
t<> learn the mechanics of debating by actual participation 
in a debate. 

Inaugurated as a single-eli- 
mination tournament last year, 
and sponsored by the Yarsity 
Debating Team, this activity be- 
came so popular that it was de-

The grade analysis for the last 
semester (Spring, 1958) confirms 
ProVQSt MeCune'l assertion that 
everyone is nut thinking out. This 
report, compiled at the end of 
each semester, provides a wealth 
of informal ion to the administ ra- 
tion and faculty concerning such 

things as the general academic 
standing of all students, the con* 
parative easiness or difficulty of 
various courses, and the desira- 
bility of keeping or dropping cer- 
tain of the same from the cur- 
riculum. 

IBM computed figures show 
that of a total of approximately 
23.000 grades issued during the 
semester, roughly 1194 were A's, 
32'i B's, 37' K ("s. 149 D's and 
.V, E's. Required P.E. and mili- 
tary grade* were included in the 
abo\e computations. 

The figures also showed that 
higher grades were received in 
the non-basic courses taken main- 
ly by upperclassmen. Increased 
interest, due to the fact that stu- 
dents were enrolled in such 



COUrsei by choice, improved study- 
habits, and greater maturity 
were accredited with CSUSing this 

improvement. 

In regard to flunks, the total 
number given for the semester 
was 12 1!». The breakdown by

Eight out of eleven gra del

many students enrolled in other 
schools take courses in this one. 

Students are reminded that reg- 
ulations for academic dismissal 
for the end of the first semester 
of I98S*SI are as follows: 

Dismissal of first semester

of 1962): failed 3 academic

Students returning after hav- 
ing dropped out of school miisl

class which they then enter. 

Those who are graduating in 
'59 are required to have a cumu- 
lative average above 1.70. Sen- 
iors are reminded that points are 
carried to the second decimal 
point. Thus a cumulative average 
of LOO would not merit gradu- 
ating. 

A person who has followed a 
normal schedule of courses and 
has passed them, may still he in- 
eligible to iM.nlti.it,' if he lacks 
-ullirieiii quality points. This fact 
should impress upon the student 
that he must strive for more than 



D's. Provost McCune re-asserted 
that "the purpose of the quality 
point is to reward quality work." 

Anyone lacking enough credits 
to graduate is required to stay

Students doing poorly in their 
Junior year are often advised to 
lighten the load by renin imng an 
extra semester. This is particu- 
larly true in the School of Engi- 
neering. 

Everyone must fulfill nil P 

Ed. requirement in order to frnd 

uate unless an excuse lias been 

a p proved by Mm proper persons. 

Only very occasionally are ex- 
ceptions made regarding students 
with deficiencies. More pressure is 
being put on advisors to see that 
the number of students (now .1 or 
per year) who find themselves 
in this predicament is reduced. 
Ultimate responsibility lies with 
the student, however, and whon 
there is any doubt an to standing, 
he should consult the Handbook.

Senate Prexy 
Sets Goals 

Senate President Bob Zelis has mapped 
out throe important objectives as goals for 
his term of office. 

First, he hopes to organize the main ex- 
tra-curricular activities on a twelve month 
basis, primarily the Collegian, WMUA, Con- 
cert Association and Student Senate. This 
twelve-month plan would include an equally 
proportional stud.-nt-tax plan for both sum- 
mer school and regular semester students. 

Second, Zelis will seek better student rep- 
resentation on some of the 25 faculty com- 
mittees where student representation is de- 

sirnVjle. 

Third, an effort to have better communi- 
cations between the administration and sen- 
ate will be put into motion. This point, un- 
doubtedly a difficult and ever increasing 
problem may turn out to be the most signifi- 
cant achievement of his term if it is handled 
with patience and understanding. 

For the senate itself, Zelis hopes to build 
the structure internally through better or- 
ganization and more efficient committee op- 
erations. 

Long a worker with the student press for 
better senate-press relations, the Collegian 
wishes him every success. 

Lambda Chi Alpha 
Takes Its Stand 

At UMass 

The controversy which recently tore a 
New York college fraternity from its na- 
tional moorings has yet to make its appear- % 
ance here. 

The Hamilton College chapter of Lambda 
Chi Alpha lost its national charter less than 
two weeks ago because it insisted on a policy 
of nondiscrimination in its membership. 

In addition to the U of M campus chapter, 
chapters at WPI and Clark University have 
declined to go along with the Clinton, N.Y. 
group and break with the policy of the na- 
tional organization, which has been described 
as limiting membership to "college men so- 
cially acceptable to the General Fraternity 
of good moral character who believe in the 
principles of Christianity." 

Raymond A. Beat, President of the cam- 
pun LCA chapter commented on the problem 
Mating, "So far, we hare had no difficult Iff 
or complaints in complying with the consti- 
tution of the fraternity. Should a situation 
arise whereby IN ><,uld not carry out our 
own wishes concerning candidates for mem- 
ship, and at the same time be within the 
laies of the national fraternity, it is our pre- 
roaatirr and OUT duly to secede from the na- 
Honal oraanr.at.on and operate as a local 

gonitation, H ■" Bmi wmtimm*, *»• 

trust that this situation will not present it- 
self." 

The split between the Hamilton chapter 
and the national organization btflM last 
March when the former resolved that its 
membership would not Km nttrktftd further 
for any reason of met, religion or otto*. 

At the Grand Assembly of the fraternity 
h.1,1 in Montreal m September the Hamilton 
group WSJ onl.-red BO abide by national pol- 
icy or have its charter revoked. Tin* revoca- 
tion followed. However, the Hamilton chap- 
ter Is continuing as a local fraternity.

From purely humanitarian motives, I feel it timely to dare the 
wrath of Zeus and speak out against a most insidious phenomenon 
gaining great momentum on our hitherto respectable campus. I shud- 
der in terror at the opinions this practice will gain us if some un- 
thinking graduate student blurts it out while visiting another college. 
Our name would be destroyed forever, our presently bright future 
would gradually dim to a nervous nicker and die, leaving utter darkness 
at the geographical center of our true, just, honorable, politically 
decent, honest,' upright, democratic state of Massachusetts. My pen 
trembles in my hand as 1 so much as contemplate this heresy of the 

academic world. 

The foul act of which I speak is one that I hope all others; stu- 
dents, faculty, cooks, Red, the fellow who mows the grass, Pres. M-t-R, 
and the blond cashier by the coffee-urns, \\ ill seek out day and night 
and whenever discovered will bring the heavy tailfin of justice down 
upon the miserable, wretched craniums of those who participate in 
the act. We must not wait for justice in the other world, but must in- 
sure its application this day, hour, minute, year, this very second. 

I weep at the corruption in all its sweeping possibilities of the 
practice of those wretches that purchase, fondle, gaze at, peruse, bdr- 
row, ferret from Goodell in the night, talk about, think about, dream 
(day or nipht types) about books which their professors have never 
assigned, ordered, mentioned, alluded to, suggested, whispered of, 
whether they be from Goodell, Baucom's, home, friend's house or 
stolen from an old lady in a subway. 

I pray my ambiguous and subtle warning without any satirical 

intent will be heeded by those who love truth, justice and education 

as does your humble, worthless author.

SUGGESTION FROM FOOTBALL FAN 

To the Editor: 

• As a football enthusiast, may I offer a suggestion on improvement 
of games here at the university? 

Why doesn't someone in the loudspeaker booth announce after 
every play some of the highlights such as who carried the ball, bow 
many yaYds were gained, fumbles, passes received, and touchdowns 
made? I'm sure this information, as well as side comments by an 
announcer, would be appreciated by many spectators.

Colonial Lounge of the Student Union, Fnday, Oct. 
24, at 8 p.m. 

Poet William Walker Gibson, for ten years (1946- 
1956) a member of the English Department at Am- 
herst College, now director of Freshman English 
at New York University will read poems from his 
just published volume Come As You Are. 

In the New York Times reviewer Robert Hillyer 
called Mr. Gibson's work "cheerfully fatalistic poems 
well worth adding to your library" and poet Rolfe 
Humphries speaks of their "quality all too rare in 
contemporary poets: that of exuberance, of delight 
in living." 

The event is sponsored by the English Depart- 
ment of the University of Massachusetts. 




DELIBERATE PLOT ASTIR 



To the Editor: ^ , , ... 

Not by chance is the "letter to the editor" (17 October) which 
criticized the "specials" in the "cold foods line" of the Hatch mistaken 
in its emphasis and condemnation; but I am sure there is astir a de- 
liberate plot to undermine the university policy on food a« it applies 
to service and quality of edibles prepared in the Hatch. 

What a monstrous accusation the letter writer has made, one 
which is wicked and badly put, and if carried to its logical conclusion 
(heaven forbid that anyone should, but I will just for the sake of 
ridicule) would mark a violent birth of intelligent criticism on this 
campus which would indeed be intolerable especially to the adrnims- 
tration. The accusation seem* to consist in implications (which I shall 
be so bold to draw out for the readers who may follow this one of a 
series of projected articles of critique soon to be submitted for publi- 
cation to the discriminating Collegian). 

These are the accusations: that the Hatch does not treat the cus- 
tomer with the dignity he is due as a student and as a taxpayer; that 
the Hatch doee not serve the best food to be found in the vicinity 
(which is as we all know a horrible perversion of truth); that the 
Hatch proprietors are bent on pawning off terrible meals on custom- 
ers unable to get "to other places to eat which are adjacent to the 
campus"; (I quote the editorial note of 17 October out of profound 
respect); that the students are victims of a monopoly; that the service 
ll inadequate; that the atmosphere in our beautiful Hatchet and Pipe 
Room is not in aesthetic harmony with that platitude: pulchra sunt 
quae visa placent; that it is not always clean and the air fresh as a 
violet by a mossy stone"; that there is nowhere to be found (and this 
is what the accusation of the nasty letter writer must imply) that 
wholesome academic fraternal atmosphere that consists in panelled 
walls, dim lights, and genteel company (we all immediately realize 
the absurd itv of this argument for as our beloved President has right- 
eously said, we will not spend one cent on "grinning Gothic gargoyles 
which implies that we have a good enough atmosphere as it exists in 
the Hatch at this moment, and as any intelligent reader will grant 
the President, panelled walls, dim lights and genteel company are 
certainly not desirable at the University, by virtue of their existence 
in other colleges side by side with grinning Gothic gargoyles). 

It would be a crime to so much as infer that the Hatch should be 
re-done, for panelling would conceal the splendidly colored walls: other 
"improv. m-M^ w-uld surely do away with the enchanting aluminum 
light fixtures, the harmonious table arrangements; the splendid sound 
reproducing mechanism, etc. Whose heart would not cry aloud to see 
all this noble tradition disappear and the melancholy of panelled walls 
etc.. substitute,! in its place? Nay, the students would rebel! 

Thus, the letter writer is obviously misinformed as well as the 
victim of his faulty perceptions. He seems not to realize that the "spe- 
cials" NTVSl in thr Hatch, far from being an attempt to defraud, are 
(as the dictionary defines "special") "dbtfafd ■"" unusual 

guoJfty; mi vofc worth],;" no one would dare deny the un- 

speakable quality «f the food, the uncommon site of the portion or 
the »„t, worthy financial advantage that accrues to the purchaser of 
the "special." 

I h..pe my poor attempts at rebuttal have served a useful purpose 
if only to expose the heinous injustice committed against our Student 
Union and by implication against our entire societe universitaire.

Ed. Note: the opStdem* expressed in this column 
are those of Mr. Michaud and do not necessarily re- 
flect those of the COLLEGIAN. 

Care to see some open handed Communist under- 
handedness? Then I suggest you follow their treat- 
ment of the forthcoming Papal elections now in 
preparation. 

With the nine day mourning period officially at 
an end, the Red propaganda machine has already 
swung into action. Their prime object, of course, 
is to cast aspersion on these elections and upon the 
Catholic faith as a whole. Their first heaving has 
been the implication (accusation is more like it) that 
the United States is attempting to control the elec- 
tions. So far, reaction to this initial movement on 
the part of the Red machine has not been noticeable. 
However this machine is yet to shift into high gear. 
Developments in the near future should^ prove to 
be revelatory of the basic aims of the Communist 
threat. 

Make no mistake. The strength of the Catholic 
organization is one of the main obstacles in the face 
of the Red movement. The wide world reaction to 
the death of the Pope has caused the inner work- 
ings of the Communist party much concern. The 
world wide Catholic influence is a power the Reds 
MUST contend with. It is a power which so far has 
given them the most trouble and remains as one of 
the major threats to their desires of domination. 

The Catholics have been most open in their at- 
tacks upon the Communist doctrine and pull no stops 
in their continuing criticisms.

International Weekend 

On campus,, we have many "big weekends" such 
as Homecoming, Winter Carnival, etc., which are, 
on the whole, social events. However, there is one 
weekend during the year, known as the International 
Weekend, which is devoted mainly to cultural ac- 
tivities. 

On this Weekend, usually in March, famous per- 
sonalities come to the University to discuss impor- 
tant current events. For example, when the Suez 
Crisis was foremost in our minds two years ago, the 
main speaker for the Weekend was Senator Hum- 
phrey of Minnesota, a top ranking Democrat and a 
representative to the United Nations. There were 
also panel discussions, one of them a stormy debate 
between Israeli and Arab delegates. 

Though the emphasis may be on cultural activ- 
ities, social events are not completely neglected. 
Foreign students from all the New England colleges 
are invited to participate in our activities; and on 
Saturday eevning, they stage the colorful songs and 
dances of their homelands. Along with the foreign 
entertainment, our own American ballroom dancing 
is featured. 

The committee planning this affair, the Inter- 
national Weekend Committee, is holding its first 
meeting tomorrow (Thursday) afternoon at 4:30 in 
the Franklin room of the Student Union. Any stu- 
dent, graduate or undergraduate, who has an interest 
in the world around him is invited to join.

THE LAND OF 



by Peter Munroe '59 



A direct descendant of Earl 
Hines, Teddy Wilson, may be 
called the father of present-day 
jazz edged cocktail pianism. It 
was Wilson that endowed the 
glaring, somewhat angular style 
of Hines with a softer, fuller 
approach. 

It may be said of Teddy that 
he presented a palatable jazz 
piano for the non-jazz enthusiast. 
His uncanny ability to improvise 
and yet still preserve the main 
theme of a tune widened the 
audience for the jazz piano. An- 
other great pianist who has 
created a widely distributed 
audience is Erroll Garner. A 
comparison may be thus drawn 
between these two giants of the 
jazz world. 

Teddy began his musical career 
(as did Maynard Ferguson) by 
teaming violin. He changed over 
to the piano because his school 
orchestra had no one capable of 
playing that instrument. His 
fame and fortune started in 
1931. when he toured with the 
bands of Erskine Tate, Louis 
Armstrong, .and Jimmy Noone. 

It was in 1935 that Wilson's 
style and ability became ap- 
parent to the public, for it was 
then that he started playing for 
Benny Goodman. Even those 
people who are jazz's worst 
enemies are given to moments 
of hypocrisy as they hear or re- 
call the swing era and/or the 
Benny Goodman band of the 
middle and late thirties. Prime

examples of Wilson's style and 
the Goodman band of this era 
can he heard on "The Great 
Benny Goodman" (Columbia 
CL 820). He led an excellent band 
in accompaniment of Billie 
Holiday which can be heard on 
"Lady Day" (Columbia CL 637). 

It should be mentioned here 
that Teddy was also influenced 
by the late Fats Waller and Art 
Tatutn, two of jazzdom's greatest 
technicians and personalities. 
Above these influences however, 
Wilson is one of the fastest 
pianists and one of the best 
technicians known in jazz today. 
From 1935 his influence was 
more than considerable, and this 
influence can be felt in such 
talented musicians as Clyde 
Hart, Sonny White, and Dave 
Rivera. 



Nursing Notes ... 

Junior Class Sits In 
On First Operation 

by BETTY KARL '60 

Recently the junior class had 
their first operating room ex- 
perience — as observers to a 
cholecystectomy, (gall blade If ( 
operation). It was, to quote s<\ 
eral juniors, "a thrilling experi- 
ence." 

Also rapidly gaining n»-\v skills 
and experience! during their 
clinical period are the 4th and 
5th year students. Child patients 
at Springfield Hospital will be 
receiving caw from the 4th year 
class, as they complete their 
work at the Wesson Maternity 
Hospital and turn to pediatrics. 

The 5th year students have 
moved to Boston where, at the 
New England Medical Center, 
they will gain valuable experi- 
ence in leadership and advanced 
nursing procedures.

Dear Aunt Ruthie... 



Dear Aunt Ruthie, 

The letter from the "unhappy 
coed" was absurd. The coed's 
attire, beha\ior, ami attitude is 
degenerative to UMuss. Stop 
the inappropriate wearing of 
shorts, slacks, and sweat-shirts 
by campus coeds! Women are 
naturally fashion conscious; men, 
rugged. Our "unhappy coed" has 
unfortunately forgotten a key 
distinction between the sexes. 
Wc forgive her ignorance. 
Two persecuted Van Meter Males 
Dear Persecuted Males, 

Untidy appearance does not 
make you rugged; also neatness 
does not rob you of any mas- 
culinity. 

Aunt Ruthie 

Dear Aunt Ruthie 

We are two freshman veterans 
who have heen trying to date 
freshman girlfc. Everything goes 
smoothly until they find out we 
are vets. Wc would like to know 
what is wrong with being a 
veteran and what have these 
girls been told. 

Two Vets 

Dear Vets, 

I don't believe that your 
trouble is caused by the fact 



that you are vets but rather the 
age difference between you and 
the freshman girls. They prob- 
ably feel that you have seen 
much more of the world than 
they and therefore feel appre- 
hensive. Try to convince them 
that your intentions are sincere 
and honorable. 

Aunt Ruthie 
Dear Aunt Ruthie, 

I have a boy friend at UMass 
who seldom eats on weekends. I 
don't want to lose him; so do you 
have any ideas on what I could 
bake for him and send to him so 
that he won't shrivel up and 
blow away? 

Thank you, 
FAT 
Dear FAT, 

Bake what you can, girl, bake 
what you can. If he is a normal, 
growing, college-type male, he 
will drool over apple pies and 
brownies (with or without nuts). 
If his taste runs to the exotic, 
and you happen to have one 
around, a side of water-buffalo 
meat makes good sandwiches.

Some Of My Friends ■ . . 

Liars Spoil It For 
Honest Excuses 

One of my friends, a profea- 
•OTj gave me a zero on an hour 
. on the other day. I had a flat 
tire. That is, while everyone else 
was taking the exam, 1 was try- 
ing to hitchhike from So »th Am- 
herst to the University. 

The professor said I would 
need a doctor's written excuse 
to take the make-up exam. Un- 
fortunately for me, I know no 
doctor who will give me a writ- 
ten excuse for a flat tire. 

I would like to accuse the pro- 
fessor of being unfair, but I 
can't. He gets all kinds of flat 
tires and flooded carburetors 
shot at him after every exam he 
gives, I imagine. 

However, I can blame society. 

If the people of this world 
were not such liars and cheaters 
I could have walked up to the 
professor, and said, "I had a 
flat tire, and couldn't make the 
exam," whereas he would have 
said, "OK kill, see me tomorrow 
and I'll let you know the time 
for the make-up exam." 

Of course all people don't lie, 
but enough do to prevent friend- 
ly relations between professors 
and students who miss hour 
exams.

Mr. Joyce has recently written 
a novel, "Revolution on East 
Riv .-r." an out -spoken, up-to-the 
minute book about the problems 
facing the United Nations. Joyce 
uses a controversial viewpoint: 
the shift in power in the UN 
< from large nations to small. 

This British author will speak 
tomorrow at 8 p.m. in the SU 
Senate Chambers on "The Im- 
pact of Atomic Disarmament." 
This is being sponsored by the 
American Friends Service Com- 
mittee and Debating Society. 

One trip to see the IFC Skits 
and Sing this weekend is worth 
a thousand words of description. 
Both will take place at Bowker, 
the skits at 7 p.m.. Saturday, 
the sing at 3 p.m., Sunday. Look 
for a lot of surprises, believe me. 




More buxom blondes with

to reason : the best tobacco 
makes the best smoke. The 
Camel blend of costly to- 
baccos has never been 
equalled for rich flavor and 
easygoing mildness. No

. £. Antora • . . Again 



The room was murkily, sullenly depressing, two small 
bulbs partially penetrated the gloom but the particles ris- 
ing from the floor rendered them almost useless. The cruel- 
ly scarred desks somehow still lent their rich brown tints 
to the slate-colored dust and the black of the night and 
made the place a study in dark muted tones; rough beige 
wallpaper turning a deeper hue as infinitesimal particles ot 
grey-white smoke were pressed into it by the exhaled 
breaths of the room dwellers. 

A days-old paper was the dominating feature of one 
whole end of the chamber, spreading all over one corner 
and advancing peninsula-like into the grimy center. Clothes 
were scattered all over the furniture, cigarette butts in a 
disorganized array across the floor and wicker chianti 
bottles were located in various spots about the room. 

A dull red, decrepit couch held two students, one ex- 
tremely morose, the other pouring forth dreams from the 
utmost depths of his young, virile yet already starting 
down the long road to death and eternal aching, heart. The 
first lad seemed unaffected by the forth- pourings of his 
compatriot but remained sunk in the well of himself until 
these words were heard: 

"You say, M.E., that the House of Walsh can pull me 
out of this lousy 'beat' state, that new clothes will make 
me gay and well liked, so that I can stop running and face 
tho world with a new suit a 'In Lloyd? No longer must I 
'dig sen' and Jab myself with tha* lousy needle to get 
that weightless feeling. Geeze, new clothes might make the 
difference. Yeah?"

Sports Dad Assoc. 
Marks Anniversary 

"Mighty oaks grow from little acorns" is an age old 
proverb that tells the story of how the insignficant often 
leads to greatness, and the humble beginning of the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts "Sports Dads Association" just 
one year ago could someday parallel the above saying. 
It was just about one year ago 



Wins E&S Award 



at this time that a half time 
huddle during a gloomy rain- 
drenched afternoon found ten 
fathers of Massachusetts' foot- 
ball players exchanging ideas. 

From this informal get-to- 
gether that began during a 
downpour has emerged the ideas 
and plans for a program de- 
signed to elevate the scholastic 
standards for students partici- 
pating in intercollegiate athletics 
at the University. 
Scholastic Achievement is Goal 

Founded and dedicated to pro- 
mote Scholastic achievement and 
Athletic excellence, this year's 
particular aim has to do with 
the emphasis being made to en- 
courage freshmen participants to 
try and achieve their highest 
scholastic potential. 

Mr. Louis Varrichione, dad of 
the Redmen's big guard Lou Jr., 
has commented, "many of us 



realize that the adjustment from 
the senior year in high school to 
the freshman year in college is 
indeed a very difficult one for 
many young people. Parents and 
instructors must be qiuck to re- 
cognize the danger signals dur- 
ing freshman year and provide 
the guidance and help that will

rate." 

The freshmen achievement 
awards could do much to help 
students gain needed recognition 
early in their college educational 
experience. 

This Saturday will mark the 
first anniversary of the Sports 
Dads Association and though the 
group has already accomplished 
much, it is looking ahead to 
many years of hard and plea- 
surable work, for its sights are 

high.

Education School Gets 




Construction — 
In Early Spring 

Part of the $9,750,00 approved 
by the state legislature for 
UMass is ear-marked for the 
new School of Education. Con- 
struction is expected to start in 
the early spring, with September, 
1960 set as the opening date. 

A joint town and University 
committee has been working on 
the plans for the elementary 
school wing, which will house 
kindergarten through grade 6. 

Tha laboratory school wing 
will provide facilities for 300 
children from the Amherst re- 
gion. Twelve acres are allotted 
for playgrounds and playing 
fields. 

A new feature is the observa- 
tion corridors on the second 
story to permit observation of 
classes without disturbing them. 
Teachers will be assigned by the 
town school committee; a limited 
amount of practice teaching will 
be done by University students. 

Features in the north wing 
will be two rooms each for 
grades 4, 5, and 6, an audio- 
visual work room, a health unit, 
and a teachers' room. The south 
wing will house the kindergarten 
classroom, and two rooms each 
for grades 1, 2, and 3. A lunch 
room will have a capacity for 
175 of students. Other facilities 
include remedial reading labora- 
tories, an academic diagnostic 
clinic, and a lecture hall to be 
used jointly by the University 
and elementary school. 

The joint town committee con- 
sists of Chairman of the School 
Committee Robert Whitney, 
Selectman Harold Elder, and 
Superintendent of Schools Ralph 
Goodrich. Representing UMass 
are Dr. Albert Purvis, Dean of 
the School of Education; Ray- 
mond Wyman, professor of edu- 
cation; Miss Helen O'Leary and 
Charles Oliver, assoicate pro- 
fessors of education; Harry 
Hugill, construction engineer; 
and Treasurer Kenneth Johnson, 
Chairman. 



Students Work In 
Political Camps 

One hundred and fifty students 
from UMass and Amherst, Smith 
and Hoi yoke Colleges are cam- 
paigning for 30 Western Massa- 
chusetts state and local candi- 
dates, as part of a laboratory 
project in political party courses 
at their respective schools. 

This is designed to give the 
students the broadest possible 
experience in politics. 

Besides three hours a week 
campaigning for a candidate in 
their area, students will follow 
the campaigns through news- 
paper accounts, familiarize them- 
selves with the district in which 
they are working, and attend 
rallies and debates. Th- will 
keep "political diaries" which 
will include their reactions as 
well as being records of their 
work. 

The counselors for the project 
are Professor George Goodwin <>f 
UMass, Dr. Victoria Schuck of 
Mt. Holyoke, and Professor John 
Kessel of Amherst.

Hanfmann— 
Sardis Talk 

George M. A. Hanfmann will 
speak on the excavations at Sar- 
dis on Monday, October 27, at 
8 p.m. in the Commonwealth 
Room of the SU. 

Hanfmann, who is Professor 
of Fine Arts at Harvard Univer- 
sity, is field director of the new 
American excavations at Sardis, 
which are sponsored jointly by 
the Fogg Art Museum of Har- 
vard, Cornell University, and the 
American Schools of Oriental Re- 
search. 

Sardis is located in the Vilai- 
yet Manissa, Kaza Salihli, Tur- 
key. 

Last summer a Harvard-Cor- 
nell expedition revived an effort 
to excavate Sardis, which was 
first undertaken by an American 
expedition during the five years 
preceding the first World War. 

The general aim of the expedi- 
tion is to study the history of 
Sardis as a human community 
through all the periods of pre- 
history and history. 

A large number of gaily paint- 
ed vessels of clay, all dating 
around 600 B.C., some traces of 
house walls, and parts of what 
may be an ancient pottery kiln 
were uncovered during this ex- 
pedition. It is hoped that future 
campaigns will prove the as- 
sumption that the ancient city of 
Croesus is located in this region. 

Russian born Professor Hanf- 
mann was trained in Germany 
(Universities of Jena, Munich, 
and Berlin, Ph.D. 1934 gumma 
cum laude) and at John Hopkins. 

He also has published books on 
Etruscan and Roman art and 
numerous articles on Near East- 
ern, Anatolian, Greek, Etruscan, 
and I«ate Antique arts. 



Senate President Zelis enumer- 
ated basic policy as new Commit- 
tee Chairmen were appointed in 
last Wednesday night's meeting. 

Zelis stressed the need to ex- 
pand the functions of the Senate 
to adjust to the need of a grow- 
ing university. He stated, that 
titers must be an increase in stu- 
dent participation in activities, 
planning to a twelve month basis. 

Zelis expressed the hope that 
the current Senate will be able to 
firmly establish uniform financial 
policies. He added that it is also 
necessary to define Senate juris- 
diction over student activities 
more exactly. In addition he 
stressed the need for greater stu- 
dent participation in administra- 
tion planning. 

Chairmen Appointed 
Senate Committee Chairmen 
were appointed as follows: Cur-

Frat Skits Highlight 
Greek Weekend 



Greek Weekend festivities 
start tomorrow night, kicking off 
one of the most entertaining 
weekends of the year on campus. 

The first activity will be the 
Fraternity Skit competition in 
Bowker Auditorium tomorrow 
night at 7 p.m. 

As this year's Skits did not 
have to be original, as in the 
past; the Greeks' performances 
are expected to have a more pro- 
fessional polish. 

The Skits give the fraternities 
the challenge of using their 
skill and ingenuity in putting on 
a fine performance without the 
aid of professional advice and 
props. 

Such a skit was last year's 
first place skit, the satirical 
"Whale of a Tale," presented by 
Phi Sigma Kappa. 

The Greeks continue their 
entertainment, competing in the 



IFS Sing Sunday afternoon at 
3:00 in Bowker. 

Each fraternity was limited to 
one song, so that they would 
aim for quality. 

A first place in the Sing is 
one of the coveted honors among 
the fraternities, so every one will 
be vieing to dethrone TKE. The 
TKE's won last year with their 
renditions of "Hospodi Pomilui" 
and "Song of the Vagabond." 

This year's songs will be: 
"Matilda" by AEP; "Give Me 
Your Tired, Your Poor," AGR; 
"Brush Up on Your Shakes- 
peare," ASP; "Juanita," KS; 
"Rock of My Heart" by LCA; 
"As Torrents in Summer," PMD; 
"Autumn Leaves," PSK; "Tom 
Dooley," SAE; "The Drinking 
Song" by SEP; "Battle Hymn of 
the Republic," TC; "Cool, Clear 
Water," TEP; and "High Bar- 
bary" by TKE.

l:'(i(/h\ appeared before the Po- 
litical Science Association in the 
SU on Tuesday. 

He delivered his opinion of the 
1958 gubernatorial campaign in 
Massachusetts. Basing his theme 
on "Campaigns — '58," Mr. 
Michaelson pointed out a lack of 
constructive issues appearing in 
what usually proves to be a 
heated race. He charged both 
parties with "gross negligence of 
the real issue": the unhealthy 
financial conditions of the state. 

Since this point is vital to 
everyone, Mr. Michtelson sug- 
gested that a more comprehen- 
sive view is possible by explain- 
ing the platform of both par- 
ties. 

Mr. Michaelson also predicted 
a democratic victory ami an 
eventual sales tax. 



Massachusetts high school stu- 
dents will arrive on campus to- 
morrow for our High School 
Guest Day. After a morning of 
visiting and conferences, the 
visiting students will be given 
passes to the U Mass-North- 
eastern Ban*

40 YEARS AGO 

"Plans are under way for a student vaudeville to be held on De- 
cember 13. Doing this is a revival of an old college custom that has 
been extinct since 1916. It is open to the entire student body but is a 
sort of inter-club affair. Each fraternity, the Commons club, the two- 
year men and the non-fraternity men are to put on an act of their 

own." 

30 YEARS AGO 

"Everyone who attends the Aggie Revue next Friday evening is 
assured that he will witness an exceedingly interesting and amusing 
entertainment. The program contains many interesting performances 
and includes the talent of the 'bright lights' of the campus." 

20 YEARS AGO 

"With a football game against Coast Guard as its highlight, 
Mass State College will play host to student fathers at the annual 
Dad's Day program scheduled for Saturday, November 5 ... The 
program for the evening includes a series of interfratemity skits to 
be held in Bowker Auditorium, replacing the Bay State Revue. At 
the same time the combined sororities will present a skit of their own." 

10 YEARS AGO 

"Finalists in tonight's Interfratemity Skit Competition will in- 
clude Alpha Epsilon Pi, presenting "Jungle Fantasy"- Kappa Sigma, 
"Casey at the Bat"; Sigma Alpha Epsilon, "Double Trouble"; Theta 
Chi, "The Secret Life of Homer Abstract"; and Lambda Chi Alpha, 
"A Stairway to the Bars" or "Life Can Be Electrifying." 

AND THIS YEAR 

Recalling the elaborate and novel Homecoming floats, one should 
expect the Greeks to give an action-packed, entertaining performance 
at Saturday's Skits. 



Alumni Profiles 

by BETH COUGHLIN '60 

While the oft-repeated story of Harlan Fiske Stone, ousted UMass 
student who graduated with honors from Amherst College and was 
Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, has become legend on this campus, 
all too little is known of some of our other illustrious alumni. It will be 
the purpose of this column to enlighten students concerning these men 
who have made prominent places for themselves in their community, 
country, or even world. 

Students with qualms as to what heights they can reach with a 
degree from "just a state school" should take heart from the examples 
of their predecessors. 

MURRAY D. LINCOLN '14 

Fresh out of "Mass Aggie" Lincoln began his enviable career as 
a pioneer county agricultural agent in Connecticut. From there the 
steady trek upward has led him to attain the Presidency of close to a 
doxen organizations including CARE. In 1943, as appointee of Presi- 
dent Roosevelt, he was a member of the U.S. delegation to the United 
Nations conference on Food and Agriculture. Again in 1946, he was 
the selection of Truman for the President's Commission on Higher 
Education. 

He is also credited with the leadership that brought about the 
construction of an "ideal" community in Ohio, named Lincoln village. 
Ab a senior at the "University" Lincoln, in collaboration with his 
roommate Louis A. Webster, former Mass. Commissioner of Agricul- 
ture, organized a new fraternity chapter, Lambda Chi Alpha. With a 
borrowed $300, the two ambitious young men purchased an $11,000 
house for their new fraternity. 

Other activities in which Lincoln participated while in college 
were: the band, Student Senate, class yearbook (associate editor), 
rifle and rope-pull teams. 

In 1954 he was presented with an honorary degree by an Alma 
Mater that can well be proud of it's product. 

It is these words, "People have within their hands the tools to 
fashion their own destiny," that are most revealing of Murray D.'s 
common ancestry with Abe Lincoln. Like the great Civil War Presi- 
dent, he has devoted his life to the proposition that "the public can 
and must be served."

Student Spoon-Fed 
Bv Professors 

Too many of our colleges (in- 
cluding UMass) are neglecting 
the main goal of an education — 
the development of the student's 
ability to think. The university 
cannot achieve this goal as long 
as most of its liberal arts courses 
are lectures which "spoon-feed" 
their subjects to the students to 
be memorized and then forgotten 
after final exams. For example, 
how many of you who have had 
History 5 remember the details 
of the Protestant Reformation ? 

The best balanced course is a 
combination of lectures and dis- 
cussions. A lecture on the Refor- 
mation will present this material 
to be discussed; a discussion of 
its causes and effects will aid the 
student in his ability to analyze 
certain facts and, consequently, 
to make the proper deductions. 

We recognize that to have stu- 
dent participation in lecture sec- 
tions is not as easy a task as one 
may imagine. For one thing, a 
certain amount of material has 
to be covered for the semester. 
Secondly, as Dean Cahill men- 
tioned, our classes are necessarily 
large because of the universal 
shortage of good teachers. He 
further pointed out that although 
a number of colleges supplement 
their lecture sections with discus- 
sion groups conducted by gradu- 
ate students, he questioned the 
ability of some of the graduate 
students as moderators. 

Naturally, the caliber of the 
discussion leaders will vary 
greatly just as the capabilities 
of the present lecturers differ. 
But if they are needed, let's use 
them. At Commencement our stu- 
dents must leave the University 
with the most important gift of 
an education — the ability to think.

Rayner Ramblings 

by LARRY RAYNER '61 

As I staggered out of a Psych exam last Friday, I met one of 
my more eccentric acquaintances, Ishmael Schmuck. You all know 
Ishmael; he is the genius who was behind the "Baker blast." 

Ishmael. if you didn't know, is a chem msjor. 

Curious, I asked Ish why he set off the explosion. 

After thinking a moment, he replied. "I lore to hear loud noises." 

I asked Ish if maybe this sort of relaxation wasn't rather danger- 
ous. Schmuck, true to his name, said, "Gee, you know I never thought 
of that. Well no one was hurt, anyway." 

"That's true," I admitted, "but we can't blame you for that. You 
tried your beat. From now on, would you kindly refrain yourself from 
exploding bombs around here." 

"What's the matter, chicken?" 

"Not for myself, Ish. for my wife and children." 

"But you're not married." 

"No, Schmuck, I'm not married." I admitted, "and if you and 
Russia don't stop playing around with bombs, I never will be either."

To the Editor: 

I believe that a Summit Confer- 
ence devoted to the discussion 
and final cessation of Nuclear 
armament would be the worst and 
most fatal error the United 
States could possibly make. 

In this period of economic de- 
pression it is most important that 
the scientists are kept busy in- 
venting and developing nuclear 
weapons. Worrying about total 
and final warfare gives students 
and citizens a national loyalty 
which keeps many of them from 
turning to other ways of life such 
as Communism and existential- 
ism. 

We have spent many millions 
of dollars on machinery and atom- 
ic weapons. To allow these weap- 
ons to rot and rust would be 
wasteful, and during a depres- 
sion waste is the one thing we 
must avoid. Waste is bad for the 
morale of the American citizens. 

We have come out victorious 
from all world wars so far, and 
there is no reason to imagine that 
we will not do so in the future. 
If we are all blown off the face 
of the earth it is in the cards 
that we should have such an end.

THE TRUE AND HARROWING FACTS 
ABOUT RUSHING 

it is well enough to sit in one's Morris chair and theorize about 
sorority rushing, but if one really wishes to know the facts, one 
must leave one's Morris chair and go out into the field. My 
Morris chair, incidentally, was given to me by the makers of Philip 
Morris. They also gave me my Philip chair. They are great- 
hearted folk, the makers of Philip Morris, as millions of you 
know who have enjoyed their excellent cigarettes. Only from 
bountiful souls could come such mildness, such flavor, such 
pleasure, as you will find in Philip Morris! For those who prefer 
crushproof boxes, Philip Morris is available in crushproof boxes. 
For those who prefer soft packs, Philip Morris is available in 
soft packs. For those who prefer to buy their cigarettes in bulk, 
please contact Emmett R. Sigafoos, friendly manager of our 
factory in Richmond, Virginia. 

But I digress. I was saying that in order to know the true 
facts about sorority rushing, one must go into the field and in- 
vestigate. Consequently, I went last week to the Indiana 
College of Spot Welding and Belles-Lettres and interviewed 
several million coeds, among them a lovely lass named Gerund 
McKeever. (It is, incidentally, quite an interesting little story 
about how she came to be named Gerund.) It seems that her 
father, Ralph T. McKeever, loved grammar better than any- 
thing in the world, and so he named all his children after parts 
of speech. In addition to Gerund, there were three girls named 
Preposition, Adverb, and Pronoun, and one boy named Dative 
Case. The girls seemed not to be unduly depressed by their 
names, but Dative Case, alas, grew steadily more morose and 
was Anally found one night dangling from a participle. After 
this tragic event, the father abandoned his practice of gram- 
matical nomenclature, and whatever children were subsequently 
born to him— eight in all— were named Everett. 

But I digress. I was interviewing a lovely coed named 
Gerund McKeever. "Gerund," I said, "were you rushed by a 
sorority?" 

"Yes, mister," she said, "I was rushed by a sorority." 

"Did they give you a high-pressure pitch?" I asked. "Did 
they use the hard sell?" 

"No, mister," she replied. "It was all done with quiet 
dignity. They simply talked to me about the chapter and the 
girls for about three minutes and then I pledged." 

"My goodness!" I said. "Three minutes is not very long for 
a sales talk!" 

"It is when they are holding you under water, mister," said 
Gerund. 




WW Mi far \itk Quiet "dtimy. 



"Well, Gerund," I said, "how do you like the house?" 

"I like the house fine, mister," she replied. "But I don't live 
there. Unfortunately, they pledged more girls than they have 
room for, so they are sleeping some of us in the bell tower." 

"Isn't that rather noisy?" I said. 

"Only on the quarter-hour," said Gerund. 

"Well, Gerund," I said, "it has certainly been a pleasure 
talking to you," I said. 

"Likewise, mister," she said, and with many a laugh and 
cheer we went our separate ways— she to the campanile, I to 
the Morris chair. c imm Mas shun 



The Campus Beat 



by ALAN LUPO 

I must make my apologies, but 
there is nothing confidential 
about this column. I do not wish 
to expose anyone, nor is there 
anyone who merits, or demerits, 
being poked at. 

R.S.O. isn't forcing me (or any- 
one else for that matter to join 
up); as far as I'm concerned, 
there is NOTHING "wrong" with 
I.F.C.; and, in general, I am fair- 
ly happy in my work. 

So that the trouble shooters 
and the insecure personalities 
won't think that I am completely 
apathetic, I shall express through- 
out the semester some of my pet 
peeves. 

Perhaps the greatest stigma on 
my happiness is the Fall odor of 
fertilizer, which sneaks on to the 
campus early in the foggy morn- 
ing and lingers. 

The Outing Club will climb 
"Jones' Nose" to the summit of 
Mt. Greylock, Sunday, Oct. 26. 
The group will leave from Skin- 
ner at 9 a.m. Non-members are 
welcome. 

Staging and lighting crew 
members for the RD's production 
of "Inherit the Wind" are asked 
to report to Bowker Auditorium, 
Sunday at 1 p.m., when the plans 
and mechanics of staging and 
lighting will be discussed. 

It seems that the neighborhood 
farmers figure that the best time 
to plant whatever neighborhood 
farmers plant is the early Fall. 
Actually, I think they are grow- 
ing fertilizer with fertilizer. 

In name, institution, personnel, 
credits, etc., we are the University, 
of Massachusetts; mentally, phy- 
sically, spiritually, and financial- 
ly, we are the University of 
Massachusetts; but in the early 
Fall, we're still Mass. Aggie.

Caputo. Mahonev Out For Season 

UMASS MEETS NORTHEASTERN 
IN DAD'S DAY GRID FEATURE 



by DICK BREBCIAN1 

The UMass Redmen will en- 
tertain the Northeastern Huskies 
tomorrow afternoon at 1:30 at 
Alumni Field. It is both Dad's 
Day and High School Day, and 
Charlie O'Rourke's gridders will 
try to send the expected large 
crowd home happy as they go 
after win number two. 

The Redmen. who pushed 
Rhode Island all over the field 
last week in a losing cause, will 
be minus the services of center 
Vin Caputo and fullback Joe 
Mahoney. 

Caputo broke his jaw during 
the game at Rhody, while Ma- 
honey suffered a fractured col- 
larbone at Tuesday's practice 
session. Both players will be out 
of action for the season. 
Will Miss Caputo 

Caputo had developed into a 
top-notch center in his first var- 
sity season and his absence will 
be felt by the Redmen. Roger 
Kindred, who was recently 
switched from fullback to center, 
will probably take over the num- 
ber two spot behind senior John 
Montosi. 

Mahoney, also a sophomore, 
saw most of his action on de- 
fense. His injury leaves the 
team with only two fullbacks, 
Buzz Richardson and Dick Hoss. 
The rest of the club is in good 
physical shape for the game. 

The UMass running attack 
was clicking last week, led by 
Richardson and halfback Billy 



Reynolds. Richardson piled up 
95 yards on 16 carries, while 
Reynolds gained 48 for 8 car- 
ries. 

As a team, the Redmen are 
a/eraging 136 yards per game 
rushing and 102 passing. If the 
line is able to provide the backs 
with some running room tomor- 
row. Coach O'Rourke is looking 
for the Redmen's best offensive 
showing of the season. 

O'Rourke hasn't disclosed 
whether he will revert back to 
the use of the two platoons to- 
morrow. The Redmen had used 
two full teams for every game 
except the opener with Maine. 
However, O'Rourke departed 
from this system last week. 
Northeastern Tough 
Northeastern has been one of 
the surprise clubs of New Eng- 
land. The Huskies have defeated 
Rhode Island, New Hampshire, 
AIC and ^previously unbeaten 
Hofstra. Their only loss was by 
two points at the hands of 
Springfield. The Husky line held 
Hofstra to only 62 yards rush- 
ing, and used an onside kickoff 
to register their initial touch- 
down of the game. 

Jim Hennessey and Tom Fla- 
herty, two outstanding junior 
quarterbacks, have taken turns 
sparking the Husky offense in 
past wins. However, a very solid 
forward wall sparked by Don 
Kinsella, Bob Lanzetta and cap- 
tain Hal Caplan cannot be over- 
looked. 



Frosh Face 
Springfield 

The freshman football team 
will take on Springfield College 
here tomorrow at 10:00 a.m. 

The game will kick off the 
Dad's Day, High School Day 
week end and a large turnout is 
anticipated. It is hoped that the 
student body will give the same 
support to the team as it did 
last week. 

On Friday, October 31, the 
Frosh face their most formidable 
opponent, Boston .University at 
2:30 at Alumni Field.

Times Encouraging 

Harvard has one of the strong- 
est teams in New England, so 
the results- were not surprising, 
although encouraging. On a com- 
parative-time basis, the times 
the UMies produced on Tuesday, 
could have beaten Brown and 
Providence College, who had al- 
ready run the same course in 
meets with Harvard. 

Coach Footrick, in an inter- 
view, streasetfHhe importance of 
conditioning in all sports. He al- 
so noted that the team has been 
progressing very rapidly and 
Mm times have been chopped re- 
peatedly. 

The Harriers are now engaged 
in strenuous workout* in prepa-

Frosh Footers Flattened

Tues., Oct. 21 — The Frosh 
Harriers, who have been out of 
training for a few weeks be- 
cause of hour exams, w^re de- 
cisively crushed by Harvai'd at 
Franklin Park by a score of 
19-44. 

The only possible consolation 



was that Bob Weeks finished 
second in the race for the Cobb- 
men. The usual UMass strong- 
men were just not in condition 
for this meet. 

But, back in training now, 
they should be ready for the

Grad. Schools Need Change 
To Meet Teacher Demand 



Presidents of some of the lead- 
ing colleges and universities 
warn that American graduate 
schools will not be able to edu- 
cate enough college teachers to 
meet the nation's pressing de- 
mand. 

Citing estimates which place 
the 1970 need for college-level 
instructors at almost half a mil- 
lion (as compared with 196,000 
full-time faculty in 1956), the 
trustees of the Carnegie Founda- 
tion for the Advancement of 
Teaching insist that the graduate 
schools must make every effort 
to meet the need as best they 
can, and at the same time coop- 
erate with other institutions 
which must also contribute to the 
training of college teachers. 

A summary of a discussion of 
the education of college teachers 
by the philanthropic foundation's 
trustees — most of them college 
and university presidents — is 
contained in the Foundation's 53rd 
annual report, released recently. 

"Great numbers of youngsters 
will flood into our colleges and 
universities whether we are pre- 
pared or not," the trustees say. 
"And these youngsters will be 
taught — taught well or taught 
badly. And the demand for teach- 
ers will somehow be at least 
partly met — if not with well- 
prepared teachers then with ill- 
prepared, if not with superior 
teachers then with inferior ones." 

The trustees insist that the 
graduate schools must try to 
stop up their rate of production 
of Ph.D.'s without lowering their 
standards. At the same time, the 
graduate schools must face the 
fact that it is not possible for

Univ. Singers Plan 
Expanded Program 

An expanded program of Uni- 
versity and community participa- 
tion in the University Singers 
was announced by Dr. John R. 
King of the UMass department 
of music. 

Membership is open to the 
University staff and all residents 
of the Amherst area Interested 
singers are urged to attend the 
Wednesday rehearsals from I to 
. r i : 1 r> p.m. in Memorial Hall. A 
membership of about 100 is an- 
ticipated. 

The group is now rehearsing 
its Christmas program, to be 
presented on Wednesday, De- 
cember 17. Selections will include 
the chorus from Handel's "Mes- 
siah" and works by Pergolesi 
and Beniamin Britten. Dr. King 
is also rehearsing a fantasia on 
Christmas carols by Gustav 
Hoist. 

It is Dr. King's hope to pro- 
vide an active season for the 
University Singers and to move 
to more varied programs, such as 
Havdn's "Creation."

them to produce the necessary 
number. According to the trus- 
tees, "Some observers go so far 
as to predict that within a couple 
of decades the graduate school 
will no longer be the dominant 
factor in the preparation of col- 
lege teachers." They go on to 
suggest ways in which the grad- 
uate school may continue to ex- 
ert wise leadership. 

One thing the graduate schools 
can do is to "revitalize" the Mas- 
ter of Arts degree, the trustees 
suggest. "A refurbished M.A. 
should he rigorous; should in- 
volve a thesis and not just 
courses; and should be regarded 
as a terminal degree in its own 
right — a respectable route to 
certain kinds of college teach-

Ignorance Of Rules 
No Longer Excuse; 
Here They Are!! 

The Administration has recent- 
ly printed a memorandum on at- 
tendance regulations currently in 
force at the University. 

It is as follows: 

Students are expected to at- 
tend all regularly scheduled 
classes at the University. No ad- 
ministrative control of attend- 
ance is exercised except in ca*es 
of illness and authorized trips. 

If a student is ill. he won't ba 
penalized if he has explained to 
his instructor and met his S/Ofk 
requirements. 

Students are excused for out - 
of-class activities, such as off 
campus trips, when they have an 
official excuse from the Office of 
the Dean of Men. His excuse en- 
titles the student to make up 
work including examinations. If 
this is too inconvenient for the 
instructor, it is his alternative 
not to count it in the final 
average. 

Trips for all groups of stu- 
rents sponsored by the Univer- 
sity or required as a part of 
course work are a responsibility 
of the University. Teams, classes, 
and other groups that are recog- 
nized an' excused with the re- 
quirement of an excuse from the 
Office of the Dean of Men. 

For overnight absence, the 
place where students are staying 
must be included. Special forms 
for reporting the requested in- 
formation are available in the 
Dean of Men's Office. As a check 
in case of emergencies, those in 
charge are asked to leave a list 
of those actually going on the 
trip in the Office of the Dean of 
Men immediately before leaving 
the campus. 

It is the student's responsi- 
bility to have his trip card 
signed by his instructors and t<> 
return it to the person in charge 
of the trip at least four days 
before the trip. 

Travel by privately owned 
automobiles is not authorized.

TEP Takes Top Skit Prize; 
TKE Best Greek Singers 



Saturday night, before a capac- 
ity crowd at Bowker Auditorium, 
fraternities showed their dramat- 
ic prowess by each performing 
seven minute skits. This annual 
competition is one of the many 
events for which points are 
awarded toward the Interfrater- 
nity Council's Overall Competi- 
tion Trophy. 

First place was awarded to Tau 
Epsilon Phi with their "Prometh- 
eus Bound or Greeks in Red 
Tape." This performance was a 
satire on some of the Univer- 
sity's administrative policies. 8ac- 
ond was Sigma Alpha Epsilon 
with, "Down the Hatch" and in 
third place was Q.T.V. with 
"Whom the Gods Love, They 
Drive Nuts or The Rich View of 
the Labeled LEEBLY Talent Pa- 
gent." Fourth place was given to 
Phi Mu Delta for their "Remem- 



ber Radio." 

During the three minutes be- 
tween the skits, the audience was 
further entertained by the States- 
men: Ed McManus, humorist; and 
Paul Ingram and his band. 

On Sunday afternoon before a 
full house, the Greeks presented 
their annual Sing Competition. 

Tau Kappa Epsilon won first 
place with an outstanding rendi- 
tion of "High Barbary." They 
were directed by Don Gagnon. In 
second place was Alpha Gamma 
Rho singing "Give Me Your 
Tired, Your Poor" and Theta Chi 
was third with "Battle Hymn of 
the Republic."' Tau Epsilon Phi 
was fourth singing, "Cool, Clear 
Water." 

The proceeds collected by I.F.C.

■1,4 Cnl.LBGIAN 

About two weeks ago, as I was scanning my 
newspaper, I came ftCPOM an item — a small it'»m — 
which inti-rested me. It seems that a group, calling 
itself the Prntfstant and Other Americans United 
For the Separation of Church and State, declared 
publicly that the three American Cardinals at the 
Roman Church would void their citizenship \* 
they to vote in the elation of a Pope to succeed the 
Ute Pius XIII; further, the P.O.A.U.F.S.r.S. .1. 
clared that they had written a letter to John Foster 
Dulles, demanding action to be taken by the State 
Department. 

The P.O.A.U. etc. does indeed have a legal case, 
for federal law forhids American citizens from | 
ticipating in foreign elections, and the Vatican City, 
of whom the Pope ll • \ officio ruler, is an indepen- 
dent and »' State. The P.O. AC. etc, in my 

njon, >l"os not have a rational leg to stand on; 
but the Constitution does guarantee freedom of 
speech, and if the group wishes |o make of itself 
A public joke, then that is its Right, and I am not 
one to deny to any group its rights. 

The l'.< I A I' etc. was organized in January of 
1<HM, for the purpose, as indicated in a Manif- 
issued the game month, of wanting of and com- 
batting, the ambitions of a "certain powerful church" 
h had "committed itself ... to ■ policy plainly 
gu j n of religious liberty as g'.iarant. e<l hy the

EVALUATION OF 
GRADING SYSTEM 

In attempting to justify any scholastic 
grading system one of two lines of argument 
may be pursued. The first puts the emphasis 
on administrative efficiency, and reads iike 
a bookkeeper's Apologia. It is based on con- 
cepts of "handling large numbers of people" 
and "the need for organization." 

The other line of argument points out the 
need for measurement of student perfor- 
mance as an indication of potential. The rea- 
soning that underlies its presentation pro- 
vides a foundation for the estimates of schol- 
arship committees, graduate school admis- 
sion boards and employment interviewers. 

It is in this latter, and perhaps more 
important attempt at mark justification that 
the limitations of any system of measuring 
knowledge and capacity become a really ser- 
ious matter. 

If we must live in a world that puts so 
much stock in a number evaluation device 
for the determination of human worth, then 
we have a right to expect the greatest de- 
gree of accuracy possible in the formulation 
of that factor. 

If such extremely important considera- 
tions as advanced educational possibilities 
and occupational opportunities are to be 
based upon our relative performance as 
against that of our fellows, then the truest 
picture should be presented. It is on this es- 
sential point that letter gradings as used 
in the quality point grading system prove 
inadequate. The instructor's final evaluation 
of a student is subject to a ten percent error, 
since a letter grade of "B", for example, may 
mean anything from 80 to 89. 

We would not think of allowing such 
leeway in any other area of measurement, 
yet in respect to our supposedly most valu- 
able commodity, educated minds, this is the 
case. 

There may never be a system which can 
claim complete accuracy in the determination 
of knowledge, but there should be an obli- 
g ition to make the fullest use of the avail- 
able system that offers the highest degree of 
accuracy, namely the numerical method of 
grade determination. E.D.M. 

the demand of any church for a relation to the state 
which the Constitution forhids." To this, one Charles 
Clayton Morrison added at a convention of the group 
in 1949: "Our objective is to maintain . . . religious 
liherty no less for the Roman Church thaji for our 
own churches." 

The aims declared above are indeed laudable, and 
I for one am not about to criticize the group on that 
account. I simply have two questions to ask. 

If the American Cardinals, one of whose duties 
it is to participate in the election of a new Pontiff, 
forbidden to carry out, or severely penalized for 
carrying out this duty by loss of citizenship, is this 
•not an alx-i ration of the Right of Religious liberty, 
as guaranteed by the Constitution? And why do the 
l'<VA.U., and other groups organized for the same 
general purpose, (and I do not doubt, by sincere and 
rational persons) allow themselves to degenerate 
into ■ pack of religious cranks, and, hy making a 
public mockery of themselves, in effect defeat their 
own purpe

A MODEST PROPOSAL ^ 

In the forthcoming expansion of our University, one field of edu- 
cation has been totally neglected. Although one may enroll for train- 
ing in everything from Arboriculture to Zoology, there is no provision 
made in the curriculum for the ambitious young criminal who wishes 
to better himself by education. It is true that there are courses in 
Criminology, but these are given from the point of view of law en- 
forcement. 

Sad to say, the only provision made for the education of the em- 
bryo criminal today is the medieval apprentice system. This has its 
evils. The training is long and arduous, and advancement depends on 
tenure and influence more than upon intelligence and initiative. This 
is undoubtedly why, by and large, criminals are notoriously incom- 
petent. 

Therefore, I propose that the University investigate the possibil- 
ity of establishing a Department of Criminal Technology. The ad- 
vantages of this plan are threefold. First, a large increase in revenue. 
Second, large donations could be obtained from leading racketeers by 
conferring honorary degrees upon them. Third, relative immunity 
from criminal practices at the University's expense in the future. 
No alumnus likes to rob Alma Mater. 

Very little expansion of existing or proposed facilities would 
be needed. Criminals are used to dormitory life, and the existing hous- 
ing would be more than adequate for them. Classes could be held at 
night, since criminals tend to be nocturnal, and more efficient use of 
existing classrooms would thus be assured. Every existing depart- 
ment of the University could contribute something toward the new 
curriculum. The military department could take over training the 
students in ordnance and marksmanship. Phys. Ed. would offer may- 
hem and robbery with violence, to say nothing of training cat burg- 
lars among the beams of Curry Hicks Gymnasium. Economics and 
Business Administration could educate white collar criminals in em- 
bezzlement and swindling. Stockbridge might offer cattle rustling. 
Chemistry would appeal to prospective moonshiners. The possibilities 
are numerous and lucrative. 

Fifty years from now, alumni may be returning for Homecom- 
ing, and they will walk nostalgically through stately Dillinger Hall, 
gazing reverently at the trophies— a bar of gold from Fort Knox, 
the first diamond smuggled from the moon, J. Edgar Hoover's upper 
plate, etc., — and bowing their heads before the famous painting of 
Al Capone on his deathbed. As they leave in silence, the setting sun 
will throw into bold relief the simple Latin motto carved above the 
lintel; 

"Cave, vigiles!" 



Editor's Mailbox 

INFORMED APPRAISAL EXPECTED 

Dear Mr. J. L.: 

Let me open by complimenting you on your, I hope, unique 
achievement. By the presence of '59 after your name I presume you 
are a senior; the content of your inane letter to the editor would never 
have given you away. How anyone can spend four years at a univer- 
sity and remain as uninformed as your letter reveals you to be is a 
secret I hope you will not pass on to the untutored, classes behind you. 

Perhaps I am wasting my time trying to each you through a 
newspaper. If you merely glanced at one of these informative tab- 
loids occasionally you would discover: That we are NOT in a state 
of economic depression; That many citizens would contend your belief 
of the fear of total war, regardless of its cohesive effect, as one of 
our national assets; That a comparison of Communism and existen- 
tialism as alternate choices in a selection of a new political philosophy 
is both fallacious and facetious, very few governments term them- 
selves Existentialistic. 

My only hope is that you are not of voting age. However if you 
are or soon will be it is time you realized that citizenship is not with- 
out its duty. Whether you like it or not, attending college has added 
to your share in this duty; people expect an intelligent and informed 
appraisal of the facts, if you fail in this you are not only uneducated 
but unworthy.

APPRECIATION 



To the Editor: 

I would like to bring to your 
attention the grateful service 
done by Mrs. Sienkiewicz of the 
Placement Bureau, for the stu- 
dents on the campus. 

In the past years when the 
time for veteran's forms and job 
applications came around, the 
only pens available in the Place- 
ment Bureau had been the 
atrocious post office type. 



This summer, Mrs. Sienkiewicz 
took it upon herself to equip the 
office with two pens that one can 
actually write with!! It is typi- 
cal of the bureaucracy of the 
great Commonwealth that she 
will never be authorized to have 
them. 

We all owe her a vote of 
thanks for her thoughtfulness. 
Sincerely, 

Jack F. Milroy 



There will be a SHORT meeting of everyone on the editorial

Every weekend, a "group" ar- 
rives at a house. For the most 
part, they are intelligent, wtll- 
fed brethren who come for so- 
cial purposes only. But in every 
group, there is always one guy, 
one man, whose appearance will 
virtually wreak havoc on a house. 

He is plastered with fraterna- 
lism. He has Mica Sigma Greptz 
on his suitcase; Mica Sigma

He is very obnoxious. You can 
tell he is obnoxious, because you

NORTHEASTERN TOPS REDMEN 

by JOEL WO LI SON 
Brookline's Jim Hennessey passed for one touchdown and all of Xorthrastern's air 
yardage as the Huskies downed the U of M, 12 to 0, before a crowd of 5500 here on Sat- 
urday. 

Northeastern didn't use a senior back in the first half as they handed the Redmen 

their fifth loss in six starts and their first shutout in 32 games. 

Three years ago, the Huskies

gave UMass their last shutout 
by a whopping 39 to score. 

Northeastern made its own 
breaks as Oscar DiNino faked a 
punt late in the second period 
and won a fourth down, nine 
yards to go. He scampered 
around the UMass left side for 
26 yards. On the next play, half- 
back John McGonagie capped the 
fifty-six yard drive when he re- 
versed around the left side for 
the remaining 17 yards and the 
winning score for N.U. 

Northeastern bottled up the 
Mass. attack, allowing Redmen 
to penetrate its 25-yard line only 
once in the first half. 

The first period saw North- 
eastern force the Redmen to the 
one-foot line before the losers 
punted their way out of trouble. 
A 16-yard Hennessey pass to 
In' Weiner on the goal gave 
Northeastern its insurance tally 
in the first minute of the fourth 
period. 

This year's Huskies team be- 
came the first club since 1958 to 
cop five wins in a season. 

Although the Redmen virtually 
Btopped the potent Northeastern 
passing attack, UM's 26 pound 
per man advantage failed to Rive 
Redmen passers enough time for 
any accural.' pass plays. 

Buzzy Richardson and Gerry 
Walls were the Redmen offer 
stars. Richardson gained 41 yards 
on nine carries and Gerry Walls

ning attempts.

Cullen, a 5'11", 210 lb. soph- 
omore from Woburn, was a start- 
er on last year's frosh eleven. 

In Saturday's contest Cullen 
played his best game of the sea-

Two tractor-drawn wagons full

It was the Commuters' annual

The freshman football team 
edged Springfield College here 
Saturday, 12-8. 

The Redmen broke the ice in 
the second period when quarter- 
back Lenny LaBella scored on a 
roll out keep around right end. 
The touchdown was set up when 
center Jim Frary recovered a 
kick that was blocked by full- 
back Dick Adley deep in Spring- 
field territory. The Frosh failed 
in their attempt for extra points. 
Springfield followed suit quick- 
ly, scoring on a 55 yard pass 
play. The Maroons were able to 
complete another pass into the 
end zone for two points. 

At the end of the half, the 
score stood 8-6 in favor of 
Springfield. 

Toward the end of the third 
period, by means of a series of 
hard driving attacks through the 
middle, supported by a 15 yard 
penalty against Springfield, the 
freshmen brought the pigskin to 
the Springfield ten yard line, 
only to lose the ball on downs. 



Springfield couldn't penetrate the 
Frosh defense, however, and 
UMass was soon back in posses- 
sion on the enemy 39. 

Then on two passes from La- 
Bella to Dick Adley, and one 
from LaBella to Mike Salem, the 
Frosh were threatening. They 
scored on the next play with a 
pass from Pete Sullivan to Mike 
Salem. 

With two minutes left in the 
game and Springfield's squatting 
on the UMie ten, it looked dan- 
gerous for the Reebenacker crew. 
However the Little Redmen soon 
drove the Maroon Frosh back to 
the 30, where Dave Harrington 
recovered a Springfield fumble, 
to wrap up the game for the 
Frosh. 

Quarterback Lenny LaBella, 
fullback Dick Adley, and half- 
back Mike Salem were the of- 
fensive standouts for UMass, 
while right guard John Kozaka 
sparkled on defense. 

The Frosh make their next ap- 
pearance against B.U. here on 
Friday, Oct. 31.

Hort. Show Transforms Cage 
Into European Village Square 



YanCon At UMass 
For Cross Country 



The annual Horticulture Show, 
sponsored by the students with 
the help of the faculty in the Col- 
lege of Agriculture, will be held 
in the Curry Hicks Gymnasium 
this weekend. 

This annual event started as a 
simple laboratory exercise. Now 
in its 46th year, it is the largest 
student - sponsored horticultural, 
show in the country. 

The general theme is a typical 
European village square, com- 
plete with flower carts, a 19th 
century building, sidewalk shops 
and a sidewalk cafe open for 
business. 

Student exhibits will play a 
prominent role this year. The re- 
quirements are that each student 
must design and construct his own 
exhibit in a given space which is 
ten feet square. There will be 17 
of these student exhibits compet- 
ing for more than $300 in prize 
money donated by the Mass. 
Dept. of Agriculture. The awards 
will be distributed among five 
classes: formal, informal, modern, 
naturalistic, and educational. 
Judging will be done by Mr. 
Clark Thayer. Mr. Stanley Under- 
bill, and Mr. Richard Wyman. 

Along with these individual ex- 
hibits, the Departmental presen- 
tations will be added* to the Hort 
Show theme. 

The hours for the show are: 
Friday. Oct. 31. I p.m. to 10 p.m.: 
Saturday, Nov. 1, 9 a.m. to 10 
p.m.: and Sunday, Nov. 2, 9 a.m. 
to 8 p.m. 

Student co-chairmen this year 
are Elaine Brandt and Everett 
Dimock. Faculty chairmen include 
Mr. Raymond Otto, Mr. Paul 
Procopio, Mr. James Anderson, 
Mr. Lyle Blundell, Mr. Grant 
Snyder, and Mr. George Goddard.

"Cheerful, polite, interesting 
Students make my work at the 
University very enjoyable," said 
Mrs. Esther Houston, R.N., of 
the Infirmary staff. 

Next January will begin Mrs. 
Houston's seventh year at the 
University. During that time she 
has witnessed two epidemics, an 
outbreak of German Measles in 
1952 and the severe epidemic 
of Asian flu last year. 

The most significant change 
she has observed during her stay 
here has been that there is a con- 
siderable decrease in the number 
of students who try to use the 
Infirmary as an excuse for cut- 
ting classes as compared to the 
situation in 1952. 

She handles an average of 60 
cases per day which mainly con- 
sist of colds, sprains, and other 
minor injuries. 

Often students who go to In- 
firmary in discomfort do not real* 
ize the courteous service given 
to them by the Infirmary staff. 



Mrs Houston is always eafOI to 

help a student, no mutter how 
minute his trouble.

Mrs. Houston graduated from 
Franklin County Hospital in 
1935. She enjoys working at the 
infirmary more than in a hospital 
because she enjoys being in con- 
stant contact with students.

Self Reliance 
The Highest Goal 

Is one of the main problems of our na- 
tion that your parents do not demand enough 
from you as their young adult . . . son or 
daughter? 

Would this nation be better off today if 
all parents demanded that their children in 
college make an improvement in their mind, 
physical status and so on by the end of their 
four year 8? 

Today many of you depend upon your 
parents, demanding from them things which 
you should strike out and obtain for your- 
self. 

The age of the self-made man has not yet 
seen its end. There are still ways of getting 
ahead without depending on whom you 
know, and how influential some of your dis- 
tant relatives may be. 

Initiative and drive to obtain the better 
things in life are quantities immeasurable. 

You are developing your mental capacity 
at college. The degree of alertness and then 
success to which you develop this capacity 
is almost completely in your hands. 

It is conceivable that you might have 
more ambition if you were constantly ha- 
rassed by your parents in a relationship 
which takes place at the high school level 
between the parent and teacher. 

However, you are not harassed, you are 
free to follow your desires to an extensive 
degree. You are free to exploit yourselves 
in activities not a part of your educational 
load. 

Would you b< f>< tfrr off, accomplish more, 
and become mor* intelligent if your parents 
hi ri demanding? 

You owe it to your parents but even more 
important to yourself to be demanding of 
your capabilities and capacities for an ade- 
quate intelligence through education.

This Is The

Less than a week from today Americans 
will go to tlu> polls to vote. The radio sta- 
tions and TV facilities have seen a sharp in- 
MM in the number of political advertise-

Possibly, the main reason for this is that 
rally enthusiasts, who only a couple of de- 
cades ago Hied to draw thousands now con- 
sider a few hundred a goodly number. 

Apparently, campaigning has been revo- 
lutionized in the past generation. The fam- 
ily la BOW concent rated in the home more <>f

radio. TV, and the mail are the chief media 
for the political aspirants to reach John Q.

This Thursday evening, under the auspices of the Literary So- 
ciety, three University students will present a reading of some of their 
own poetry. The students are John Devine, Bruce Gregory, and Rich- 
ard Severens; the time of the presentation will be 8 p.m., and the place 
the Nantucket Room of the Student Union. 

It was never clearly stated whether or not the "intellectual apathy" 
which was such a topic of campus discussion last year extended to 
the creative arts. It would appear not, when one considers events such 
as this, sponsored by the Literary Society. There is considerable res- 
ponse to its program, including the writing contest it sponsors joint- 
ly with the Quarterly. It is a good thing to know we are not falling 
behind here, for it is on today's college campuses that tomorrow's 
writers will begin.

DEPRESSION OR RECESSION? 

To the Editor: 

Re. J.L.'s letter of Friday, October 24. It is indeed a 
pity that a senior at this L T niversity could commit such a 
faux pas as to refer to the present economic situation as a 
"period of economic depression." Where has this person 
been hiding since the 1930's? Is he a modern-day Rip Van 
Winkle? Obviously he has not had the opportunity to en- 
lighten his belabored brain by reading the publications of 
this day. 

For example, the Wall Street Journal of Octobei 6, 
1958, observed, "It seems to be pretty well established in 
most observers' minds that a recovery from the 1957-1958 
recession started in April or May and has been underway 
ever since." Tims magazine and others have been screaming 
"recovery" for months. 

This person should take advantage of the many courses 
in economics offered at this university, wherein even the 
most dense minds learn the difference between recession 
and depression. 

As for waste being "bad for the morale of the Ameri- 
can citizens," 25 % of all food purchased in this country is 
wasted by the American citizen. 

R.P. '59 



HIGH SPIRITS AND SPIRITS 

To the Editor: 

It is not my intention here to pronounce a judgment on my fel- 
low freshmen. Moreover, I hope what I do say here will not be con- 
fused with the shallow, wide-eyed moralizing which is prevalent. 
However, I think a rational discussion of the question of student 
drinking is in order. 

Certain students, the majority of whom are no doubt underage, 
occasionally like to go out and drink a few beers on the week end. 
If they can "get served," or can find someone of age willing to buy 
beer for them, it is not my concern. 

Howivir, many of these individuals have a mistaken notion of 
the merit involved in being able to drink two or three beers. They 
feel that having imbibed to this small extent, it is their right, no — 
their duty, to return to the dormitories and make it generally known 
that they "have had a few." When an impromptu football game is 
played in the corridor outside my door at 2 a.m. that IS my concern! 

Well then, is drinking wrong? No! At least not in my humble 
opinion. I really enjoy going out with the boys and having a few 
rounds of Schlitz. What's more, I believe that an occasional "blast" 
is good for the soul. But I hardly equate having a few beers with 
putting on a "phony" exhibition of drunkenness. My friends have 
ranged from teetotalers to habitual drunkards, but I have never heard 
any of them speak of any merit in getting "drunk" on three beers. 
(Some of them haw claimed that virility is commensurate with ra- 
pacity, but that's a different argument, and one easily refuted.) 

What am I getting at? Just this: whether you go out and drink 
a fifth of a Sclilitz or a fifth of Seagram's 7 is strictly up to you and 
your budget. (John Law may have a word, too, if you're underage.) 
Go out. Haw your drinks. Talk, sing and "roughhouse" until your 
fling is flung. Then, be it large or small, shoulder your load and bring 
it home like a man. Following these directions you'll be able to look 
your roommate in the eye in the morning (if the light is dim). And, 
more important, he'll still be your friend, or, at worst, an indifferent 
cellmate.

Liberate Students 
From Shadow 
Of Paternalism 

Comments by 

Richard Brown 

History Department 

by RICHARD MacLKOD '60 

Describing himself as "the egg-head in a den of 
politicians," a man of small stature and quiet ap- 
pearance startled the new members of the Student 
Senate when he addressed them recently on "the 
role of student government at a university." 

Mr. Richard Brown, Assistant Professor of His- 
tory, first admonished the Senators — and student 
leaders in general — for their failure to "liberate the 
student body . . ." from the "shadow of paternal- 
ism" that presently exists on this and other college 
campuses. 

Freedom To Investigate 

The true philosophy of what a university is — 
what the actual purpose of a student is — should be 
to maintain the freedom to "investigate, and to go 
and do," added Mr. Brown. 

As proof that such "paternalism," which he de- 
scribed as "the antithesis of free spirit," does exist, 
the popular professor (known as "Tiger" by his 
students) portrayed the original concept of a uni- 
versity as that which existed in Europe during the 
Middle Ages. At that time, he noted, "a group of 
students gathered around a learned man to pursue 
knowledge." These "two groups in pursuit of knowl- 
edge" are joined by a third integral segment in the 
modern university. 

This third group, the administration, doesn't 
share, in this "pursuit of knowledge" function, but 
rather, given the complexity of the modern univer- 
sity, makes it possible, continued Mr. Brown. 

He emphasized that there is no question of pow- 
er involved, that the ordinary concept of govern- 
ment cannot be applied to a university, but that 
each group, administration, faculty, and students, 
has to speak for itself — cannot be spoken for — and 
that none should be more important than another. 

Independent Individual 

However, he asked, if pursuit of knowledge is 
the purpose of a university, "what spirit is neces- 
sary?" He went on to say that the answer rests 
with the spirit of an independent individual who re- 
fuses to be led, or to lead others, by the hand, thus 
discarding this "paternalistic" tendency. This type 
of free individual is "the only one who can pursue 
anything," commented Mr. Brown. 

Be caricatured the general student body as hav- 
ing "its collective hand upraised to be led," while 
noting the lack of any individual initiative, espec- 
ially with regard to extracurricular activities. 

StudentR Should Lead 

He stressed that these activities are too often 
merely "lengthened shadows" of the respective fac- 
ulty advisors. In student organizations, advisors are 
not important, and leadership should come from the 
students, he continued. 

In the same respect, he believes that this applies 
to domination of some student activities by a few 
student members. He cited the "necessity of com- 
pulsory attendance" in what are supposed to be vol- 
untary organizations as an example of student "pa- 
ternalism." 

Individual Initiative 

Citing steps being taken at UM that indicate a 
return toward individual academic initiative, Mr. 
Brown noted that the revised college of Arts and 
Science curriculum has enabled some students to 
undertake independent studies as "honor students" 
within a particular department. Also, in some sub- 
jects, if students can show adequate knowledge of 
a particular course, they don't have to take the 
course. " 

Summarizing his comments, Mr. Brown stated 
that students should "think big and think respon- 
sibly" if they wish to take their place on an equal 
level with the faculty and administration.

It lias been said that Charlie 
Parker was the greatest individ- 
ual influence on modern jazz in 
the history of that art. Certain- 
ly this can be proven either 
musically or historically. Parker 
was the forefather of that small 
g.ouii of musicians, who in the 
early 1940's, were dissatisfied 
with a style of music which they 
felt to be stereotyped, primitive 
in form, and musically illiterate. 

Working out of Minton's in 
New York's Harlem, this group 
of musicians felt the drive and 
determination of Parker's ex- 
pression. It must be understood 
that this group did not neces- 
sarily realize that they were 
doing anything startlingly new. 
Freeing themselves from the 
yoke of traditionalism, they gave 
way to a new sound ... to be 
later branded as bebop. This new 
idea in jazz might be termed 
"freedom of expression" or even 
"musical emotionalism." To these 
musicians, ideas and "room to 
move around in" were more im- 
portant than the patterned, in- 
hibited style of traditional jazz. 
Charlie Parker, along with 
pianist Thelonius Monk and 
Dizzy Gillespie, had found the 
direction to a freer type of jazz 
in creative experimentation. 

Parker explained this new phe- 
nomenon in this manner: "... I 
found that by using the higher 
intervals of a cord as a melody 
line and backing them with ap- 
propriately related changes, I 
could play what I had been hear- 
ing I came alive." And jazz came 
alive — alive with controversy, and 
tit w and esthetic technical prob- 
lems, with a critical re-examina- 
tion of form and structure. 



Parker's best years were from 
1942 to 1945 and 1948 to 1953 
when his technique and phras- 
ing displayed the ingenious mind 
that revolutionized jazz. Late in 
1945, while in California with 
Dizzy Gillespie, Charlie started 
p«jin| for some youthful errors 
which caught up with him. He 
was too ill to work and was con- 
fined to a sanitarium. 1948 saw 
him active again, and now he 
was playing more brilliantly 
than ever, making recordings 
that were masterpieces. Despite 
recurrences of his chronic ma- 
lady, Parker continued to play 
his profound, daring, and re- 
markably executed music until 
he died in March of 1955. 

Parker is still the most talked 
about, most batoned to, and the 

most copied musician in the world 
today. His music was uncompro- 
mising and he seldom, if ever, 
gave way to popular tastes and 
preference. Not being an enter- 
tainer as well as a musician, it 
was to be expected that Charlie 
would not fare well financially, 
and it was necessary for his 
many friends to raise money, not 
only to care for his wife and 
children, but to pay for his fu- 
neral as well. The masterful jazz 
pianist, Lenny Tristano paid him 
tribute in his "Requiem": a me- 
morial to ingenuity, invention, 
■mx\ to it i eatness.

Dear Aunt

Dear Aunt Ruthie; 

I am an extremely popular 
coed, and I receive many, many 
phone calls. This, however, is a 
problem — this is a problem of 
the girls on proctor duty. 

Mine is this — when I receive 
most of these calls, I am usually- 
engaged with another fan, and 
upon returning, my servants 
carry the messages to my abode. 
Ordinarily, I find nothing but 
MCNM. Oh Aunt Ruthie, what 
will I do with these men who 
don't leave a name? Please 
speak to them about this most 
perplexing of problems. 

Yours (and everybody else's), 
B.B. 

Dear B.B. 

Maybe these men don't want 
their identity revealed to you — it 
is a terrible feeling, I would 
think, to be just "one of the 
fans."

Dear Aunt Ruthie; 

Re— The vets of last week who 
are having trouble getting dates 
# with freshmen girls. We think 
we have a solution. You say that 
the vets have been around and 
haw seen the whole world and 
the freshmen girls have not, but 
you neglect to mention the 
seniors who have "lived" through 
Spring day and a panty raid and 
many other enlightening and 
educational experiences. So Aunt 
Ruthie, do your duty as you see 
it and give us Seniors a chance.

Dear Seniors; 

You have spoken for your-

QTV is unique 
in the fact that 
it is the only 
Latin local fra- 
ternity in the 
United States. It 
is the oldest fra- 
ternity on cam- 
pus being founded 
on May 12, 1869, 
two years after 
what was then 
Massach u s e 1 1 s 
Agricultural Col- 
lege opened its 
doors. 

Five years lat- 
er another chap- 
ter was estab- 
lished at the University of Maine, and by 1888 chapters had been 
added at New Hampshire State, Pennsylvania State College, Worces- 
ter Polytechnical Institute, and Cornell University. 

These chapters soon disbanded or accepted charters in Greek na- 
tionals, and shortly after the turn of the century, the parent chapter 
remained as the QTV. 

Since then, no further attempts have been made to establish chap- 
ters in other institutions, although periodically there have been move- 
ments towards accepting a charter from a Greek national. 

Through the years the house has remained an important part 
of this ever-growing campus. 

Next May the house will cele- 

brate the 90th anniversary of its ™ 

founding. Appropriate ceremo- 
nies will highlight the occasion. 

The present house officers are 
all seniors President Ed Mori- 
arty is a General Management 
major from New Bedford. Fred 
"Tank" Purches, a Business ma- 
jor, serves as Vice-President. 
Treasurer Connie Rousseau is an 
Accounting major from Ames- 
busy, and Hank Tomagno of 
Newton acts as Secretary. 

At present the house has 50 
members. Thirty men reside in 
the chapter house at 358 North 
Pleasant Street. 

The brothers of QTV fill a 
cross section of the various de- 
partments of .the University. 
They major in Business, Science, 
Engineering, and Liberal Arts. 

This year in compliance with 
the new L^niversity regulation, 
they acquired the services of a 
housemother, who has become an 
integral part of the fraternity. 

In interfraternity competition 
the house has always held its 
own as witnessed by the recent 
Homecoming Parade where a 
first place was awarded to them. 
They also ranked third in the 
IFC skits. 

QTV has won the IFC bowling 
league for three consecutive 
years. 

On campus QTV is well known. 
They are represented in the 
Quarterly, WMUA, the Collegian 
and Ya-Hoo. They have a class 
officer, a Reveller, the president 
of the Roister Doisters, and rep- 
resentatives on the athletic field.

X-COUNTRY 

(Continued from j>age 1) 

ens Phys. Ed. Building. Since 
the course has not been timed, 
an official time will be set when 
the first runner crosses the finish 
line. 

The last time UMass won a 
YanCon Cross Country meet was 
in 1953 at UNH. The following 
year, the conference title was 
won by Maine at URI, followed 
by UConn. UMass finished last. 

Nineteen fifty-five was a new 
year for the UMies as they came 
in a close second to the winner, 
again Maine, and at the same 
time nosed out UConn. 

UConn was first in 1956, 
Msii'i'- second, LM&ss third. »>as<. 
year it was Maine again, fol- 
lowed by UConn, then UMass. 

Last fall's individual winner 
was Bill Daly '60, of Maine and 
his teammate Dan Reurick '58. 
This year the records show that 
all the teams are about evenly 
matched. From previous experi- 
ence, Daly of Maine most likely 
will lead the park along with 
his teammate and captain Dale 
Bessey T>9. 

All of the clubs are heavy 
with sophomores and juniors, so 
that the succeeding years' Yan- 
Con meets should be really some- 
thing to look forward to. 

Counts On Captains 

Coach Foot rick will be count- 
ing on his co-captains, Fete Con- 
way and Don Medera, to lead 
the Harriers to victory. Running 
with the captains will be Dick 
Atkinson 'fiO, Emo Barron T.1, 
Joe Kelsey '59, and Jim Keelon 
'60. 

This road race will be a pano- 
rama of color what with the foli- 
age, the "brightly clothed spec- 
tators, and the contrasting colors 
of the 'runners' suits. UConn 
men will wear blue pants and 
blue shirts as will the runners 
from Rhody. The Bears from 
Maine are slated to wear white 
pants and dark hlue shirts. Pure 
\. Hampshire will be repre- 
sented by harriers in white pants 
and white shirts, while the men 
from Vermont will be in green. 

I Muss will dress its men in 
maroon pants and white shirts. 
With the wardrobe by Bishko 4 
Co., we hope the visitors will see 
a lot of red before them. 

Rare Starts At 2 

Joe Rogers is scheduled to 
start the race at 2 p.m. at the 
foot of Lover's Lane, or by 
Leach House, if you don't know 
where Lover's Lane is.

Amherst Tops 
Lambert Cup Poll 



by JOEL WOLFSON 

Two years ai/o an in, 
Amherst College eleven halted an 
undefeated and untied Tufts 
team at five straight with a tit) 
upset victory*. 

"This week Tufts will be look- 
ing to gel even," said Jeffs' coach 
John Mcl.aughry, at the weekly 
Wettem Mass. coaches-sports- 
writers season at UMass Mon- 
day. "Unfortunately, Tufts de- 
feat at the hands of Williams 
last week, 37-8, means an ex- 
pected reversal of form for the 
Jumbos in this week's game," 
Mcl.aughry continued 

Amherst Undefeated 

Riding the crest of the unde- 
feated and untied teams in the 
nation, the Amherst eleven has 
probably one of the most lop- 
sided statistical compilations in 
the nation. The Jeffs have netted 
1349 yards rushing to their op- 
positions' 241. They have a total 



sive net gam of 1783 yards 
to 456 for their foes in five 
games tl si Ipn. 

Tlie JelTs are rated the num- 
ber nee small Colleye team in the 
Salt, by virtue of being chosen 
for the top spot in the v ™kly 
Lambert Cup standings. 

Gay Salvucci, coach at AIC, 
said that his sophomores are 
now coming into their own in the 
line. He praised his best pa'sser, 
Bobby Anastas and spoke of the 
coming contest with Brandeis. 
"It may be a wide open game," 
coach Salvucci added. 

Line Improving 

Ted Dunn, coach at Spring- 
field College, the only team to 

whip Northeastern so far this 
season, said that with continued 
Work his line will come along. 
Springfield's last three games of 
the season with Rhode Island, 
New Hampshire and Hofstra will 
be rough.

has gained BIS yards rushing. 
At the present rate, he will break 
the all-time NFL one season 
rushing record in eight games. 
Steve Van Ruren, the Flying 
Dutchman, gained 1,146 yards 
for the Philadelphia Eagles in 
twelve games, nearly a decade 
ago. 

Jimmy will probably set a few 
scoring recorda along the way, 
too. Last Sunday he scored four 
touchdowns as the Browns 
whipped the Chicago Cardinals, 
38-24, for their fifth straight 
win. 

He was voted "Rookie of the 
Year" last season. In a game 
against the Rams he gained 237 
yards on the ground, a record. 

At Syracuse, Jimmy was the 
first four letter man since Jim 
Konstanty, who went on to fame 
as a major league pitcher. 

Jimmy and the Browns will be 
on the TV game this Sunday. It 
will b< well worth watching.

DITTOS 

1-2 in moti polls last week, were 
both tied. The injury-riddled Ca- 
deta turned from the nation's of- 
fensive leader to a defensive stal- 
wart in preserving their unbeat- 
en record. 

Over eighty thousand sat in 
the rain at Columbus, Ohio for 
the Buckeye-Badger tilt. A fum- 
ble and an Interception in the 
closing minutes kept them from 
seeing a startling upset 

UConn's Lambert Cup hopes 
were jolted as Delaware handed 
them a 28-0 pasting. The Blue 
Hens sent a homecoming crowd 
home happy as they outplayed 
the Huskies all the way. Dela- 
ware meets Rutgers this week 
and the Redmen on November 
eighth. 

Amherst Top Contender 

With UConn out of contention, 
it would appear as though cross- 
town Amherst has the inside 
track for the coveted cup, sym- 
bol of gridiron supremacy among 
the East's small schools. The 
Jeffs have won five in a row, 
scoring 1C>2 points while holding 
their opponents to 6. 

With no game on tap this 
week, many UM football fans 
will take in the Amherst-Tufts 
clash at Pratt Field. 



Intramural Gaines 



With the intramural football 
season drawing to a close, SPF 
continues to lead Group "B" of 
the fraternity division, while 
Kappa Sig and Phi Sig are dead- 
locked in Group "A." KS and 
PSK each have won three games, 
lost none and tied one. The tie 
was a 20-20 battle between the 
two teams earlier in the season. 
Kappa Sig meets SAE in an im- 
portant game tomorrow night. 

Sig Ep, led by Bob Mann, re- 
mained undefeated and untied 



last week by rolling over AGR, 
30-0. Mann scored two touch- 
downs and passed for three more 
in the easy win. The Sig Eps 
have allowed only six points 
scored against them this fall. 

In other games last week, TKE 
dumped AEPi, 19-0, to remain 
in third place in Group "A," and 
ASP sneaked by PSD, 6-0. Mills 
dormitory is leading the inde- 
pendent league with a 4-0 record. 
The schedule of playoff games

The room was murkily, sullenly depressing; two small 
light btilbs partially penetrated the gloom hut particles 
rising from the floor rendered them almost useless. The 
cruelly scarred desks somehow still lent their rich brown 
tints to the slate-colored dust and the black of the night 
and made the place a study in dark muted tones; rough 
beige wallpaper turning a deeper hue as grey-white smoke 
etched into it from the exhaled breaths of the room- 
dwellers. 

A days-old paper was the dominating feature of one 
whole end of the chamber, advancing peninsula-like into 
the center. Clothes were spread in a disorganized array- 
over the furniture, cigarette butts were scattered across 
the space that was not covered by other impedimenta and 
chianti bottles had been arranged along the windowsills 
and the mantlepiece. The sickly sweet smell of heroin hung 
DVef the whole area like a smog blanket and resembled 
nothing more than a latterday Dante's "Inferno." 

A dull-red decrepit couch held two students, one ex- 
tremely morose, the other pouring forth the dreams from 
the utmost depths of his young, virile yet already stumbl- 
ing down the long road to death and eternal vegetating 
heart. The first lad seemed unaffected by the forth-pour- 
ings of his compatriot but remained sunk in the well of 
himself until these words were heard: 

"You say, M.E., that the House of Walsh can pull me 
out of this lousy 'beat' state, that new clothes will make 
me gay and well -liked so that I can stop running and face 
the world with a new .- uit a la Lloyd? No longer need I 
'dig Zen' or jab myself with that lousy needle to get a real 
weightless feeling. Truly, a new jacket might make the 
difference!"

Tax Referendum Claimed Invalid 



Senate Seeretary 
Forced To Resign 

by SONIA LANGWA '61 
Senate Reporter 

The Alumni Association moved 
to invalidate the results of last 
spring's Senior Tax Referendum, 
and Francine O'Donnell '61 an- 
nounced her resignation as Sen- 
ate secretary at last Wednesday 
night's Senate meeting. 

Miss O'Donnell stated that con- 
flicts with studies and other ac- 
tivities prevent her from devot- 
ing the time necessary to carry 
out her duties efficiently. She 
will, however, continue as sena- 
tor from Knowlton. A new sec- 
retary will be elected at next 
week's meeting. 

In the referendum, the Class 
of '59 voted to discontinue the 
customary senior tax of $3, cov- 
ering one year's membership in 
the Alumni Association. 

The tax was defeated by a 
simple majority, 199-178, and 
the results were accepted by the 
Senate. 

In a letter to the Senate, 
Francis Driscoll, Assistant Ex- 
ecutive Director of the Associ- 
ate Alumni Association, pointed 
out that the Senate By-laws re- 
quire a 2/3 majority of those 
voting to pass a referendum. As 
there was not a 2/3 majority, the 
referendum is invalid, Driscoll 
claimed. He asked that the Sen- 
ate declare the referendum void 
on constitutional grounds and 
that the tax be added to next 
semester's bill of members of the 
class of '59. 

Election Committee Chairman 
Don Robar '61 announced that 
all nomination papers for Sen- 
ator-at-large from the class of 
'59 must be turned in by I p.m. 
on Monday, Nov. 3. The election 
will be held on the following 
Wednesday. 

An interesting point was 
brought out by Senator Robert 
G. Prentiss '60, concerning the 
proposed UM booth at the Am- 
herst College Mardi Gras. The 
Mardi Gras committee stated 
that 25 % of the profits of the 
booth would go to UMass and 
7S4I to an unnamed charity. It 
seems that the unnamed charity 
is an Amherst College scholar- 
ship fund! Prentiss suggested 
that we hold out for a 50-50 
split of the profits or withdraw 
from our booth. 

Two non Senate members, Dan 
Hemenway '61, and Don Crotcau 
'61, were appointed to the Public 
Relations Committee.

Den verCentenn ia I 
Honors Mather 




UMass President J. Paul 
Mather was honored Wednesday 
evening as part of the 100th 
anniversary celebration of the 
founding of Denver, Colorado. 

Denver Mayor Nicholson cited 
the president for "Denver's ap- 
preciation for the important 
work you have done in your 
field." He was also named as a 
former resident who has "re- 
ceived widespread recognition in 
the field of education." 

The president earned his 



bachelor's degree at the Univer- 
sity of Denver School of Com- 
merce, Accounts and Finance in 
1937. He returned to the Univer- 
sity of Denver in 1946 where he 
received his master's degree in 
business administration. He re- 
ceived his M.A. degree from 
Princeton University. 

Before coming to UMass as 
provost in 1953, he was staff 
associate and assistant treasurer 
of the American Council on 
Education. 



Two hundred children of the students, faculty, and employees of 
the University were guests at a Halloween Party yesterday given 
by the SU Games and Tournaments Committee and the Pub- 
lic Relations Committee. The youngsters enjoyed a program of 
games, refreshments and cartoons, and received prizes for the best 
costumes.

A panel discussion will follow, 
with UMass students participat- 
ing. 

Gail Totman '59 and Judith 
Abrams '60 student counselors 
for the summer program will 
speak on its value, and freshmen 
Dean's Scholars, Dorothy Hub- 
bard, Ruth Henderson, and Jo- 
sephine Longo, will give their re- 
actions to the orientation period. 



by JAMES J. O'LEARY '61 

Prof. Bean, political analyst, 
ex-professor of economics at U 
of M, and one of the few indivi- 
duals to have publicly predicted 
the great 1948 democratic upset, 
advised students in the Senate 
Chambers that, "to be a fore- 
caster one must not deal only 
with issues, but also with men." 

"There are issues which shape 
elections. The rising of the presi- 
dent's popularity reflects the ups 
and downs of public opinion." 
Continuing, Mr. Bean pointed 
out that "we are now living in 
the fourth period of republican 
control," and "there is a dif- 
ference between predicting elec- 
tions in a mid-term election year 
in contrast to a presidential 
year, for the party in power is 
weaker in the period between

presidential years." 

In commenting on the reces- 
sion as a major factor in this 
election, Mr. Bean said, "We are 
now confronted with the same 
conditions as 1931, which threw 
the Republican party out and 
brought in the New Deal. We 
are faced, just before the elec- 
tion, with an unemployment rate 
of 6%. This of course, is centered 
mainly in the industrial area of 
the Northeastern section of the 
nation. The Republicans are at 
a weaker level than they have 
been in years. If the President's 
coattails have any pulling power 
in helping Republican candidates, 
their force is less than that of 
'56." 

On the basis of this, plus the 
major issues and the so called 
"political tide," Mr. Bean pre- 
dicted a situation comparable 
with that of 1936. with "a Demo- 
cratic gain of 50-60 seats in the 
House and 12-13 in the Senate." 



'What Is God?' 
Question For Panel 

"What is God" will be dis- 
cussed by Professors Snyder of 
the Zoology Department and 
Feldman of the Psychology De- 
partment will join with Harold 
DeWolf, professor of Systemic 
Theology at Boston University 
School of Theology*, this Sunday 
at 6:45 p.m. at the Wesley 
Foundation. 

The panel will consist of I 
ten minute presentation by each 
panelist, followed by an open 
question period. 

It will be preceded by a sup- 
per at 5:30 and Fellowship 
Group Meetings. 

Two weeks ago at the Wesley 
Foundation of the Wesley Meth- 
odist Church, Professors Wood 
side and Feldman joined with 
Rev. Rex Shepler in a panel dis- 
cussion of "What is Man?", 
speaking from biological, psy- 
chological, and theological 
point! of view. 



by Beth Couglin '60 

The stern feminine portrait, 
hanging on Crabtree's "date 
room" wall is one of a lady with 
a past, Lotta Crabtree. 

Born in the days of the Gold 
Rush, she was brought up on the 
Pacific Coast, where the prover- 
bial fever had summoned her 
father. Daddy never struck it 
rich, but I <»f t a. as a dancer and 
impersonator, found herself 
showered with nuggets and gold 
watches for her performances in 
smoke-rilled saloons. 

Her acting brought her to the 
attention of the New York 
sophisticates, to whom she was 
a top drawing card for ,,ver 30 
years. 

Idol of hundreds of young 
men in the '70's and '80's, she 
was once wined and dined on a 
Russian warship by the Grand 
Duke Alexis. 

After her retirement from the 
stage, she found herself a lonely 
old Bostonian spinster burdened 
by a f rtune of over three million 
dollars. 

UMshh enters the picture since 
its agricultural school was left 
over one million dollars in I <>tta'* 
will to aid young men in getting 
established in farming. Lotta, a 
great animal lover and herself 



owner of a string of race horses, 
had never seen our school. The 
other major part of Lotta's 
fortune was left for the care of 
Civil War veterans.

Where Are You Going, 
Little Man? 

Look at yourself, little man. You have 
bought yourself a trench coat with flashy 
lining, a pair of bucks, a pair of chinos, and 
a pipe. You've even had your side burns 
shaved. You've transformed yourself from 
a high school boy to a college man. 

And you, young lady — now you have a 
new pair of Bermuda, shorts, a pair of dirty 
white sneakers, a sloppy college sweatshirt, 
and a vocabulary that would have shocked 
you a year ago. You're a co-ed, girl. 

Every college has its share of students 
whose only ambition is to be a college stu- 
dent. The University of Massachusetts is no 
exception. Look about you. Joe and Mary 
College are everywhere. Oh, sure, they study, 
but just enough to get by. After all, they 
can't flunk out. They have a racket here. 
Where else could they find room and board, 
a minimum of supervision, and unlimited op- 
portunities for play, while dad stays home 
paying the bills. Their biggest worry is 
where to borrow enough money to get by 
until next week's allowance comes through. 

Now, this type of student doesn't consti- 
tute the majority of college students, but he 
docs exist in large enough numbers to cause 
some concern. 

Are you this type of student? If you don't 
know, ask yourself the following questions: 
"What is my main academic concern, doing 
well in my studies or just passing?" "Do I 
conform with the rest of the student body?" 
If you conform too much, you're lacking in 
ambition. "Why did 1 come to college?" Your 
reason had better not be to dodge the draft, 
or for girls, to find a husband. 

Remember, colli <jr is a step on the ladder. 
not thi tit j> rung.

Through A Glass, Darkly 
Temples Of Futility 

by IAN McLlRE 

To me, the rising walls of the new Science Center are a melan- 
choly sight. When the life sciences h?.ve moved into the magnificent 
new edifice, a long tradition will come to an end. I refer, of course, 
tu the biologist's contempt for physical surroundings. Longer than any 
other scientist, the biologist has held out against the lure of a glit- 
tering, white-tiled laboratory. Even today, some workers are still 
doing important research in odd little cubbyholes. But this is soon to 
change. With the resurgence of interest in science, soon any worker, 
no matter how obscure, will have at his or her disposal a laboratory 
more palatial than, and rather resembling, an air terminal washroom. 

END OF GOOD OLD DAYS 

It is sad to think that the shabby, comfortable old laboratories 
I knew and loved in Fernald and Marshall Halls will soon be but a 
nostalgic memory. In the modern palaces, will there be room for the 
genial clutter so prevalent in the old? Will there be the same oppor- 
tunities for amusing and fruitful accident? What will the biologists 
do with themselves, when the greater part of their time is not oc- 
cupied in hunting down elusive references in missing journals and in 
stealing apparatus from each other? 

The great "Parkinson's Law" states, as a corollary, that any 
organization achieves proper quarters only during its declining days. 
In the active, growing period there is no time for designing quarters 
to meet the unique needs of the organization. This, I fear, may be 
true of the sciences. In casting my mind back over the history of sci- 
ence, I cannot recall a single basic discovery which has been made in 
a properly equipped laboratory. Madame Curie isolated radium in an 
old tool shed. Koch discovered the tubercle bacillus in his wife's kitch- 
en. Galileo's observatory was a church belfry. I do not think this is 
accidental. The tenant of a modern laboratory is committed to a line 
of research that will show a profit, in knowledge if not in money, 
and he cannot indulge himself in the delightful following of his nose 
that may lead him into virgin territory. Of all human endeavors, sci- 
ence has the greatest need of the devoted amateur, the "lover" in the 
best sense of the word. Research teams with magnificent equipment 
may do great things, but this is technology and not science. The sad 
plight of the modern physicists in their gilded cage of security is a 
dread warning to us all. 

SAME IN OTHER FIELDS 

This preoccupation with the details of physical plant is not con- 
fined to the sciences. For example, the "Palace of Physical Culture" 
west of the campus. Athletics is a very good thing, but is it not being 
taken from the wrong end ? The Greeks integrated athletics into their 
culture more successfully than any people before or since, but their 
facilities consisted, at the most, of a flat field with an adjoining bath- 
house. 

If the present trend continues, I can foresee the day when our 
shining monuments to culture are inhabited by frustrated workers 
who spend three-fourths of their time filling out requisitions in tripli- 
cate for a test tube or a new pencil.

Agrees There Should Be 
A Marking System Revision 

I believe that E. D. M. in his editorial "Evaluation of Grading 
System" has made a valuable suggestion. A numerical grading sys- 
tem would be, I think, much more efficient than the letter system, 
and would give a fairer picture of the student's actual standing in 
his courses. 

Admittedly a numerical grade of 8b, 62, or 95 is too precise. It is 
justly argued that no teacher can give one student a grade of 79 and 
another a grade of SO and honestly maintain that the second is the 
better ttudent Yet this numerical difference, one of a single jnrint, 
does in fact show how small the difference in performance has been. 
In this case a Utter gnul, of C would he unfair to the student who 
has done u>>rl; only slight ly inferior to the student who receives H. 

On the other hand, two students may in the same course receive 
C and B respectively; yet percentagewise there may be a 19 point 
difference tMtWMn them. The first student receives a grade equivalent 
to TO peicent, while the second, who has done nearly excellent work, 
earns a grade equivalent to 89. Clearly the differences between a 
l»el(>\v-average student and a very good student have been un<i' 
emphasized. 

Many of the faculty, perhaps a majority, use tjie numerical 
markin ■ -"I on quiszi s, lnmr exams, and finals. Those who use 
litttrs almost invariably employ tin plus-minus si/stem. In so doing 
u actually corns very close to the numerical method, sinct tlicy 
l<nak the single letter grade into three different values. Thus, if a 
tin on rival grading systt m were t,, >„ adopted hy tl'i I ni n -rsit y, it 
w<>nl<l not be entirely a foreign one. 

The Adminisl ration, in adopting the Quality Point System, ob- 
viously belieeee that grades are important. Therefore, if we are to 
have grade*, if «•* air to take our science, language, literature, and 
B ROTC inklM and ni!\ them together to oomc up with the all- 
inipoiiant | ft, why can we not do so under a grading system 

which is at least clear and meaningful. Numerical grades, while they 
obviously fallible, are clear and meaningful. Furthermore, they 
are fair in that they do not set up rigid dividing lines between ex- 
cellent, very good, average, and failing gradee. 



RAYNER RAMBLINGS 

by LARRY RAYNER 

Today I would like to introduce to you Ish Kab- 
bible. You are all familiar with Kabbible; he is the 
person who delights in tearing down campus organ- 
izations. 

Ish believes that "the Colli ginn is nothing more 
than a rag, the band is the worst he's ever heard; 
and the Senate is a do-nothing organization, a 
Wednesday night sewing circle." Kabbible also main- 
tains that this college has athletic teams that 
"couldn't play their way out of a paper bag." "My 
high school team," says Ish, "could whip this team 
so bad that it would never again appear on the play- 
ing field." 

Naturally Kabbible tells his pals that " the meal 
tonight was really the worst yet." (The fact that 
his plate was spotless evidently is an irrelevant 
matter. 

Of course we all know Ish's tale of woe when 
asked to join one of these organizations. It goes 
something like this: 

"Who, me? I don't know a thing about writing." 

"Sure, I played the clarinet in the high school 
band but I have neither the time nor talent to play 
for the band." 

"Sure, I quarter-backed my team to the State 
championship, but I could never make this team."

40 YEARS AGO 

"The annual flower show of the Department of 
Floriculture at M.A.C. is to be staged March 14 and 
15 in French Hall. Although in previous years a 
flower show has been staged in Farmer's Week, the 
department's big show has usually been in the fall. 
This year the lateness of the opening of college 
made it necessary to postpone the usual fall show." 

THIRTY YEARS AGO 

"One of the features of attraction on campus 
last week was the Floriculture Show which was an 
unquestionable success and met with approval on 
all sides. The outstanding features in the main hall 
were a pretty rock garden reminiscent of the sum- 
mer, an educational exhibit, and a display of beau- 
tiful large chrysanthemums. In the large hall were 
tables containing two classes of basket arrange- 
ments in competition." 

TWENTY YEARS AGO 

"Because of extensive hurricane damage in- 
curred September 21, the 27th Annual Horticulture 
Show is cancelled, according to an announcement by 
the Faculty Advisory Committee. Since the hurri- 
cane damaged much of the material to be used in 
the show, in particular the fruit which was to have 
formed the central theme, it was thought wiser to 
omit the show than to stage an exhibit which could 
not be up to the standard of previous years. Also, 
departmental funds, time and energy must be di- 
rected to the work of reconstruction. 

. TEN YEARS AGO 
"The University's 36th Annual Horticultural 
Show will hold the campus spotlight on Friday, 
Saturday and Sunday of this weekend when up- 
wards of 16,000 visitors are expected to view the re- 
splendent display now being constructed in the 
Cage." 

AND THIS YEAR 

Because of its evergrowing popularity, over 
20,000 enthusiasts are expected to see the pageantry 
of this year's Horticultural Show. The theme will 
be a "European Village Square." 



Writers Still Needed 

The editorial staff of the Collegian still is in 
need of editorial and feature writers. No previous 
experience is necessary. Many of you who have 
never written before will have the ability to be good 
columnists If you are int. 'rested, pfeagft leave your 
name and campus address on the editorial bulletin 
hoard in the Collegian office. 



Crabtree . . . 

(Continued from jmge 1) 

It was this portrait of Lotta Crabtree which 
hangs now in the dorm with her name, that pre- 
vented her will from beirg broken by a woman 
claiming to be an illegitimate daughter. The wo- 
man, correctly identifying Lotta in all her "work- 
ing-clothes" pictures, was unable to do so when 
her alleged mother was pfeeested in dignified dress. 

The next time you pass by Lotta's portrait and 
she stares at you sternly from beneath her pompa- 
dour, see if you don't detect a wink! 



The CampUS Beat Lost & Found 

A LOST: One gold pendant ear 



by COLETTE Dl'MONT '59 

I really don't know how I got talked into this but I said I would 
do this column tonight. There ought to be a course on this campus in 
the gentle art of saying no. Just think of the areas of study. 

Another strange thing happened today . . . yup, the SUN was 
out. If that was strange enough in itself! There always has to be a 
fly is every ointment and today's "fly" was the wind. It seems to me 
that the wind on this campus is stronger and sharper than any other 
in any part of this here world. 

Complaint of the day: why aren't there any meetings tonight and 
tomorrow night? Have the activities on this campus gone on strike? 
It would seem so. 

Nomination papers for Winter Carnival Queen .will be issued to 
the fraternities, sororities, and dormitories today. These nomination 
papers should be returned to Tom Brusseau at Kappa Sigma by Fri- 
day, the seventh of November. 

Jazz enthusiasts and lovers of the Modern Sounds!!! Listen to 
Barry Friedman on "Swingtime" Sundays from eight to nine p.m. on 
WMUA. 

The Lutheran Club will meet on Sunday, Nov. 2, in the Worcester 
Room of the Student Union. This will be a supper meeting with Pastor 
Walter Krieger of Easthampton as leader.

How To Score 
A X-Countrv Meet 

For those of you watching this 
Saturday's YanCon Meet, this is 
how the event is scored. 

First, the team with the low 
score wins. The first five men 
from each team score points for 
their team relative to the place 
they finish, i.e., one point for 
first place, two for second, and 
so on. The sixth, seventh and 
eighth men on each team cannot 
score, but they can keep the 
other team from scoring. A per- 
fect score in a meet occurs when 
one team scores 15 points.

20,000 Flock To Student-Sponsored Horticultural Show 

Auto Crash 
Injures 4 



by JUDY KONOPKA '61 

Three I nivi rrity students and 

one Smith College student were 
involved in a two-car head-on col- 
lision on Route 2 at Phillipston 
and Baldwin Hill Roads near 
Athol yesterday afternoon. 

Robert Sweet '59, the driver of 
the students' car, sutTered lacera- 
tions and abrasions, and was 
taken to the Athol Hospital, 
along with Robert Fishel '60, 
Nancy Hazlett '61 and Linda 
Hird, a student at Smith Col- 
lege. 

Fishel suffered lacerations and 
abrasions of the face and legs, 
and Miss Hazlett, a fractured 
leg. The occupants of the other 
car, Mr. and Mrs. Nelson W. Gil- 
bert, Greenfield, and Frederick 
Shepplar, Springfield, were only 
shaken, when their car skidded 
from the road into woods nearby, 
Athol state police reported. 

On their way back to Amherst 
from a Methodist Convention, 
the students' car struck Gilbert's 
when he was trying to make a 
left turn, doing severe damage 
to the front end of the Sweet 
car 

John DeVine '59, a WMUA 
announcer, who was in the im- 
mediate vicinity right after the 
accident occurred, commented 
"One of the seats in the Sweet 
car was thrown out about 30 or 
40 feet." 

The front end of the car was 
smashed in so much, he said, it 
looked like it was only about six 
inches long. 

Sweet is a counselor from Van 
Meter, and Fishel, a member of 
the Student Senate, representing 
the commuters. 



Coon Chews 
Possum's Paw 

Flowers weren't the only vn- 
1. 'est of a raccoon in the wild- 
life display at the Horticultural 
Show Saturday evening. 

When the opossum in the next 
cage put her paw out to greet 
friend racoon, she suffered a bad 
beating, as friend coon grabbed 
the extended paw and started to 

chew. 

The opossum was rescued and 
brought to the Amherst Veterin- 
ary Hospital, where I>r Freder- 
ick G. Kuder, Jr. used several 
stitches to close the wound. 

Among the absent was the 
opossum in the display on Sun- 
day. It was explained that she 
had bled quite a little, and it 
would be better if she retired 
from showing. 

Whether the incident was a 
rivalry between the zoology and 
wildlife departments, since one 
of the animals came from each, 
or whether it was a rivalry be- 
tween two females, was not dis- 
closed.

An estimated 20,000 people 
Hocked to America's largest stu- 
d e n t - sponsored Horticultural 
Show held this weekend at 
i .Mass. Both four year and 
Stoekbridge students enter and 
compete in the show. 

A 19th century castle-like 
building, the center of this year's 
show, the theme of which wan 
"European Village," was sur- 
rounded by side walk shops, gar- 
dens, and a cafe. The garden to 
the right of the building was cre- 
ated by the Smith College florist. 
Its double size was due to a mir- 
ror reflected image. 

Elinor Smiley 7>!> and Warren 
Cummings '59 managed the Flor- 
iculture Department's booth, 
which made and sold both fresh 
and dried arrangements to vis- 
itors. 

The odor of food attracted 
scores to the Food Management 
sidewalk cafe where hot dogs, 
hamburgers, cider, and coffee 
were served by the Steward's 
Club. Douglas Wright '59 directed 
the booth, which was run both 
inside of the cage and also out- 
side for the first time. Business 
was so good that next year the 
cafe will be able to expand. 

In the center of the student ex- 
hibits were the commercial and 
amateur displays created by 
members of the Holyoke-North- 
ampton Florists and Gardeners 
Club. 

Carey, the Florist of South 
Hadlev, was the winner of the 
new George Sinclair Cup, named 
in honor of its donor. His ex- 
hibit centered around a vase of 
orange Hird of Paradise flowers 
and spider chrysanthemums. 

This year's student co-chairmen 
were Elaine Hrnndt '59 and Ever- 
ett Dimoek '59 who worked with 
faculty co-chairmen Paul Proco- 
pio and James Anderson. Ray- 
mond Otto, head of Landscape 
Architecture was general design, 
chairman, and Lyle Rfundell of 
the same department, general 
construction manager. Grant Sny- 
der and George Goddard of the 
Department ,,f Horticulture w 
treasurer and publicity chairman 
respectively. 



ARMSTRONG TO PROPOSE REROUTING OF COMMONS' LINES 



hy ( HARLENE PRENTISS '62 

At Wednesday's Student Sen- 
ate meeting, Robert Armstrong 
'GO will introduce a measure ask- 
ing that the Senate recommend 

to the Superintendent of the 

Commons that the lines be re- 
routed in the following manner: 

1. Line t'2, down the stairs 
through the rear door, and then 
North through the old Snack Par. 
Entrance to this line to be. gained 
through the North doors on the 

side of the Commons, 

2. Line S3, down the stairs, 
through the rear door, and then 
South through the corridor lead- 
ing to the Common's Office. En- 
trance to this line to be gained 
through the South doors on the 
West side of the Commons. 

3. The center doors on the West 



side of the Commons to be locked ~ 
one way so that entrance may 

nut be gained through 1 1 

doors, but they may still be u sd 
for exits. 

"This motion, which will hrinie 
the students inside of the build- 
inir. is designed for their conven- 
ience, as they are tired of stand- 
ing in the cold." Armstrong said. 
"It is also intended as a means of 
stopping the drnft which sweeps 
up the stsirs," he continued. "I 
hope that this measure will dis- 
courage line rutting and promote 
easier exiting." Armstrong said. 

Armstrong, a newly elected 
Senator from Mills Dormitory is 
the Student Service Chairman and 
a member of the Executive Com 

mittee. He is also the Athletic 

Di r eetor of Mills and is .active in 
the Marketing Club and the Man 
agement Club.

TODAY'S EDITORIALS 

Creative Thinking 

Many students would like to see more of 
an opportunity for "creative thinking" in ex- 
aminations. What they mean, presumably, is 
an opportunity for the student to draw on 
daw-room knowledge as a whole in order to 
solve specific examination problems. 

Creative thinking connotes original 
thinking, which, in turn, connotes new think- 
ing. X«w thinking suggests imagination, and 
that is not a substitute for real knowledge. 
Creative thinking, as such, belongs in cre- 
ative writing courses. 

Moreover, a little factual knowledge and 
a lot of imagination may be the early symp- 
toms of the dread disease: pseudo-intellec- 
tualism— the madness which excites the in- 
fected individual to assert that Plato was ex- 
tremely frustrated as a baby, or that Exis- 
tentialists are hopeless individuals who wear 
beards. No intelligent discussion can be car- 
ried on without a familiarity with basic 
facts. 

No, this does not mean that the "regurgi- 
tation" method is the best one to be used in 
exams. The instructor who accepts his lec- 
tures, memorized and written verbatim in 
a blue book, as the gage of a student's knowl- 
edge is not without sin. Brute memory with- 
out the ability to relate and integrate facts 
is no less an evil than pure imagination; it 
can lead to another prevalent illness: 

pedantry. 

There must be an alternative to the pure 
fiction of "creative thinking" and the pure 
fact of "regurgitation." A professor once 
irritated a student by writing this comment 
on one of her exams : "There is the minimum 
of fact and interpretation in these answers." 
He demanded a maximum of fact intelligent- 
ly interpreted and integrated. But teachers 
have a right to demand this interpreted fact, 
and we, as students, have a right to demand 
it of ourselves. The ideal examination 
stresses a method we might call "indepen- 
dent thinking." L.M.D.

Holding The Bag? 

Recently the USSR left the United States 
holding the bag on the proposed one year 
moratorium on nuclear testing. Now it is 
•being debated whether or not we should sus- 
ptnd testing irregardless of what action the 
Soviet Union takes. 

There are some basic facts which must 
be kept in mind by those authorities who 
shape, and the final authority who makes, 
this decision: 

1. TImt.- is r.'eorded scientific data that 

the detonation <»f nuclear devloei has in- 
UKatlfd the amount of radio-active material 
in the atmoaphera, 

2. Continued testing will only increase 

the amount of contamination in the ataoa- 

phere and in living beings.

point X is reached: Ml equally respected

AMCOP Presents "Madame Butterf h M 

The members of the community are once again [privileged in 
having the opportunity to attend another fine Amherst Community 
Opera production. AMCOP will present Madame Butterfly by Gia- 
como Puccini at the Regional High School in Amherst on November 
7, and 8, 1958. 

Officially organized in April, 1953, the company enlisted recruits 
from Amherst, South Hadley, Northampton, Greenfield, and Spring- 
field, and grew almost immediately to a working organization of 
approximately 150 members — singers, designers, musicians, stage 
crew, and business crew — under the enthusiastic leadership of Mrs. 
Contino. 

High In Skill And Accomplishment 
Over the last five years AMCOP has proved to be not just a 
valiant attempt of amateurs, but a musical adventure high in skill 
and accomplishment. AMCOP has consistently refused to compromise 
its artistic integrity, and, as a result, the Central Opera Service, 
sponsored by the Metropolitan Opera Association, has recently re- 
cognized AMCOP productions as outstanding examples of the finest 
work in community opera in America. 

These productions have always been well attended and enthu- 
siastically reviewed. It was after seeing Traviata that Willard Clark, 
music critic of the Springfield Sunday Republican, wrote that "the 
Amherst Community Opera must be regarded as among the finest 
of the non-professional companies in the country." Other critics have 
been equally enthusiastic. All have been pleasurably amazed that an 
opera produced solely by amateurs can be a high quality artistic 
accom pli shmen t. 

Interest To University 
Many people who are or have been in AMCOP productions are 
affiliated with or of interest to the University. Fiora Contino is 
founder, president, and director of AMCOP, and wife of Joseph Con- 
tino. Joseph Contino, Music Department, plays the first Clarinet 
Dorothy Feldman, wife of Robert Feldman in the Psychology De- 
partment, has the role of "Butterfly." Robert Feldman, Psychology 
Department, is in charge of recording. Olive Jeffrey, wife of Fred 
Jeffrey, Assistant Dean of Stockbridge, is on the ticket committee. 
Ellen Goodwin, wife of George Goodwin in the Government Depart- 
ment, directs the chorus. Mrs. Stanley Koehler and Mr. Stanley 
Koehler, English Department, have been in the AMCOP chorus. 
Robert Johnson. French Department, has worked on sets and publicity. 
Leon Barron, English Department, alumnus of the University and 
former Statesman, has had baritone roles and is working on publi- 
city. Richard Rescia, alumnus, who appeared or assisted in most 
musical productions of his college generation, sings the role o* 
Gorot in "Butterfly." Mrs. Joseph Langford, whose husband is in the 
Engineering Department, is in the chorus. 

Mrs. F. S. Ellert, whose husband is the Head of the German De- 
partment is first violinist. John Weidhaas, Entomology Department, 
plays the trumpet. Mrs. Sumner Greenfield, whose husband is in the 
Romance Language Department, is a violinist. Claire Landro, Ro- 
mance Language Department, plays the violin. Paul Norton, Head of 
the Art Department plays the flute. Richard Thompson, an alumnus 
who is now Vice-President of the First National Bank, Amherst, is 
in the chorus. Edith McCune, wife of the Provost, had a soprano 
role in an earlier opera. Mrs. Henry Peirce and Mr. Henry Peirce, 
Speech Department, are working on sets and make-up. Doris Abram- 
son. Speech Department, is on the make-up committee. Mrs. Al 
Madeira, wife of a member of the English Department, is working 
on make-up. Jean Manfredi, whose husband is in the Sociology De- 
partment, is on the money raising committee, as are Mrs. Lane, wife 
of Robert I^ane in the English Department, and Mrs. Glenn Tinder, 
whose husband is in the Government Department. 

Students in Madam* Butterfly are Ruth Knighton, sophomore, 
first flutist <«f fa* I'M conr.it bead; Joyce Southwell, senior trombone 
player, and librarian of the concert band; and David Wentworth, a 
junior music major, trombone player.

The Social Service 
State Marches On 

by IAMBS A. MERINO 

Last week, in Canton, Ohio, an event took place 
which all right-thinking Americans ought to bear in 
mind constantly, lest the pernicious cancer, in my 
opinion, spread over all the land. 

Some background to the event is necessary. Some 
four year- ago, Fairy-grandmother Federal Govern- 
ment extended Social Security coverage to farmers, 
which meant of course that those who were to bene- 
fit from the system must pay the 3*4% of income 
levy. But in Ohio, a group of Amishmen had re- 
fused to pay the tax on the grounds that I Timothy 
B:8, and other Bible passages, commanded them to 
care tor their own: which they do, for County rec- 
ords show not one case of an Amishman seeking wel- 
fare benefits. 

The 'civil service' bureau sought to ignore the 
fact that federal law exempts groups which have 
their own pension system, from Social Security pay- 
ment*; and the Amish, by virtue of the fact that they 
have no need of government pensions, do indeed have 
their own system. So Father State has felt it neces- 
sary to punish those who indicate that they do not 
need his 'services,' and promptly confiscated Amish 
properties to auction them off in lieu of delayed 
payments. 

Iniquitous! 
If the Amishman, or any other group for that 
matter, indicate that they have no need for Papa 
'Service State' in spite of the current Liberal hog- 
wash, then I say leave them in peace! Why should 
they be penalized; why must they be constantly 
harassed ? Is the incident in Ohio indicative of what 
we are to expect in the future? The 'Serv ; » State?' 
Humbug! Indeed, I am unable to offer irrefutable 
evidence of a cause and effect relationship between 
the growing 'Service State', and the current signs 
of social disintegration in the West; but it is not 
unreasonable to argue that were the former less 
prominent, so also the latter. 

One glance at mid-twentieth century civilization, 
and one knows, in spite of the pious mouthings of 
the good clergy, that the sin of the Amish is that 
they have endeavered to live, with some success, in 
the manner one would expect a Christian community 
to live. Obviously, then, the Amish are indeed a 
dangerous and radical group, a clear threat to our 
modern 'progressing' society. Therefore it is neces- 
sary that the 'Service State' repress and destroy 
them, for they disturb it. Because they disturb it, 
they must be punished.

Mather In Politics 

To the Editor: 

As I was reading this morning's Boston Herald, 
a political advertisement caught my attention. It 
read "Are you concerned about college education for 
your child? Hear Governor Foster Furcolo and J. 
Paul Mather, President of the University of Massa- 
chusetts, tonight at 7:30 p.m. on WNAC-TV." This 
advertisement caused me to consider whether our 
President, for whom I have, in the past, had the 
greatest respect, might now be using his position 
and the reputation of the university to the advan- 
tage of a political candidate. If this is so, I believe 
that President Mather does not have the right to 
use the public trust invested in him by the people 
of the Commonwealth for his own private, personal 
interests. 

S.H. '62 

Editor's Note: We completely agree with you, 
S.H. As representative of this state-owned univer- 
sity the President has no right to publicly campaign 
for any political candidate. By doing so, he has low- 
ered the prestige of the university and* probably 
caused great resentment amongst Republican legis- 
lators. We wonder how they are going to react when 
>.i j-t year's university's appropriations come up? 
Unfortunately, the COWMAN hasn't been able to

interested in knowing that they 
are available for campus engage- 
ments this year. 

The Statesmen, a double

a remarkable blend and should 
have many on and off campus

Anyone interested in engaging 
the Statesmen should contact 
Pete Monroe at 105 Van Meter 
or telephone AL 3-9276 or

More adventurers on the 
wing smoke Camels than 
any other cigarette today. It 
stands to reason: the best 
tobacco makes the best 
smoke. The Camel blend of 
costly tobaccos has never 
been equalled for rich flavor 
and easygoing mildness. 
Year in and year out, Camel 
leads every other cigarette 
in sales. 

Don'i fool around with

Although Horn ,'oming week- 
end Is supposedly >>ver and for- 
gotten the affair concerning Phi 
Mu Delta's raid on the UConn 
campus the night before the 
game is still being mentioned. 
Everyone seems to beliavs that 
the matter is being treated with 
the utmost of secrecy. This is in- 
cuieet. for Phi Mu openly ad- 
mits responsibility for the re- 
moval of the sign above Jona- 
thon's kennel, the home of 
UConn's aged mascot. 

The brothers of the aforemen- 
tioned fraternity . are merely ex- 
pected to repair or replace this 
sign. In a letter to the IFC, the 
president of UConn's student 
government stated, "I do not be- 
lieve that this incident has al- 
tered the friendly relations that 
have existed between our two 
Universities. Please reply as soon 
as possible as to what action is 
going to be taken. . .in this mat- 
ter.'* 

At the last meeting of the 
Inter-Fraternity Council, Dean 
Hopkins spoke on the need for 
better fire prevention measures 
in the fraternities on this 
campus. The proper committees 
were immediately formed and a 
formal investigation is now 
under way. 

The policy of this column has 
been extended; in addition to dis- 
cussing the fraternity system in 
general, there will appear, hence- 
forth, brief reviews of the func- 
tions sponsored hy each indivi- 
dual house.

This coming Sunday, Alpha 
Kpsilon Pi fraternity will hold a 
tea for its new housemother, 
Mrs. Barton. The brothers, their 
guests, and members of the 
faculty will attend.

Alpha Gamma Rho recently 
held its annual Pink Rose For-

supplied by Jimmy Ray and his 
Four Sharps. 

SIG EP 

The brothers of Sigma Phi 
Kpsilon fraternity will sponsor 
their annual Neighbor's Day 
next Sunday at 3:00 p.m. The 
purpose of this affair is to ac- 
quaint the residents of Amherst

Autumn Ball 
A Big Hit 

The Autumn Ball, sponsored 
by the Baker Social Committee, 
was held this past Saturday eve- 
ning from 8 p.m. until midnite 
in Baker House. 

The music was supplied by 

Don Tcpplcr's orchestra. The 
opinion of all those who attended 
was, "it was really great." 

There was a wide variety of 
music for those who wished to 
dance and those who preferred 
to listen. The Rec Room was 
decorated with autumn leaves 
and cornstalks, following the 
theme suggested by the name of 
the "Ball." 

Andy Soucy '62 stated, "It 
was a good dance with an ex- 
cellent band. There was a large 
variety of music, so everyone had 
a chance to dance to his favorite 
type. I am rather disappointed 
that there wasn't a larger at- 
tendance, however for those that 
did not come, you missed a good 
time."

Vermont Wins YanCon Meet 
In UDset; UMass Second 



BU Pups Pound 
Frosh Gridsters 



by DAVID GOLDSTEIN 

Amherst, Nov. 1 — Sophomore 
Doug MacGregor of New Hamp- 
shire led a field of 42 runners in 
the Eleventh Annual Yankee 
Conference Cross Country Cham- 
pionships as Vermont won its 
first YanCon title in a surprising 
upset. 

MacGregor finished with a fast 
time of 25:17, 36 seconds ah. >ad 
of runner-ups Norm I'icard, Fred 
Kolstrom, and Howard Cutts, all 
Y- rmont juniors. Teammates Ray 
Allen and Bill Perkins finished 
tenth and fifteenth to give the 
Catamounts a winning score of 
34. 

IM ASS SECOND 
The University of Massachu- 
setts was runner up in the Bean- 
pot contest with a score of 72. 

Co-captain Pete Conway, Dick 
Atkinson, and Jim Keelon fol- 
lowed a minute behind MacGreg- 
or in sixth, seventh, and eighth 
places. 

Perennially strong Maine went 
down in defeat as their Co-cap- 
tain Dale Bessey and last year's 
YanCon winner Bill Daly came 
in eleventh and twelfth places. 

MacGregor and teammate Cal 
Fowler of UNH led at the mile 
mark. At the two mile post Mac- 
Gregor had lengthened his lead 
and was trailed by Norm Picard 
of Vermont. Picard pressed Mac- 
Gregor at the three mile point, 
but settled for the number 2 slot 
for the race. Fowler had slipped 
to number 13 at the finish line. 

RESULTS GOOD 

The UMass trio of Conway, 
Atkinson, and Keelon were prop- 
er hosts in leading the visitors 
around the course. 

Coach Footrick thought that 
his 11 a triers did well despite 
their constant trouble of getting 
a close group of five top scorers. 

Wednesday, the Hill and Da- 
lers travel to Springfield for a 
dual meet before closing out 
their season with Amherst the 
following week on the home 
course.

VARSITY BOOTERS 
BLANK CLARK 4-0 



by PETE TEMPLE 

The UMass soccer team, paced 
by Andy Psilakis and Dick Will- 
iams, stopped a five game losing 
streak, defeating Clark 4-0. 

The Briggsmen opened the 
scoring early in the second per- 
iod when Paul Mailman, the 
team's leading scorer, found the 
range on the Clark goal. Psilakis 
followed with the first of his two 
tallies, and the Redmen had a 
2-0 half time lead. 

In the third quarter, the Red- 
men added their final two goals. 
Psilakis scored again and Cap- 
tain Bernie Gloclowski booted 
home a penalty shot. 

The victory was the third of 
the season for the hooters who 

have suffered five setbacks. 

All three wins have been shut- 
out performances by goalie Dick 
Williams, who had to come up 
with many fine stops to save this 
whitewash. 

The team played one of its fin- 
est games of the year. The play- 



ers controlled the ball, passed 
well and were alert on defense. 

The final game of the season 
will be played Friday afternoon 
in Medford against Tufts. 

The Redmen are confident of a 
victory, which would give them a 
respectable 4-5 record for the 
year. 



sparked the Terrier offense with 
his pin-point passing and timely 
running. 

At one point in the third per- 
iod, Bradley carried three straight 
times to move the ball from the 
mid-field stripe to the UMass 
five. 

The first time he handed the 
ball off, however, Nick DeNitto 
fumbled and UMie Ken Judge 
picked the ball off in the air and 
ran it back to the 35 to get the 
Redmen out of trouble. 

Bradley put over the first B.U. 
TD late in the first period on a 



bootleg play around the end from 
the UMass 35. He then booted 
the extra point to give the pups 
a 7-0 lead. 

B.U. Controls Ball 

B.U.'s second score came in the 
-..•I-. uid quarter on a pass from 
Bradley to Dick Robischaud, good 
for 75 yards, and a 13-0 margin. 

The Redmen received to open 
the second half and Don Fer- 
mano ran the kick hack to his 
own 36 from the goal line. UMass 
moved the pigskin as far as mid- 
iieiu, bin ran out m steam and 
B.U. controlled the ball most of 
the second half. 

The Pllpa wire knocking on 
the door late in the third period, 
when they fumbled and UMass 
recovered. Adley kicked out beau- 
tifully from deep in his own end 
zone, but B.U.'s Robischaud zig 
and zagged the ball all the way 
back for the Pup's third TD. 

UMass Passing Poor 

The big difference in the game 
was the passing. The Little Red- 
men had receivers out in the 
open but the QBs couldn't hit 
them. All in all, the UMass pass- 
ing attack looked very poor. 

Dick Adley played almost the 
whole game at full for the Red- 
men and did all the punting. He 
and Ko/aka were outstanding for 
the Frosh. 

The team did well enough 
against such a strong club and 
showed that there is a lot of 
potential for next year's varsity.

It was ■ joke that gave rise 
to the most spectacular trial of 
the twentieth century — the trial 
that has been dramatized in the 
New York stage hit, "Inherit the 
Wind" which is being presented 
at the Bowker Auditorium at the 
University on Nov. 14th and 15th. 
The trial was the famous 
Scopes case which drew world- 
wide attention to a carnival of 
oratory in 1925 in the little town 
of Dayton, Tenn. 

The beginnings of this affair 
that spilled over the newspapers 
of the world for many weeks 
were in a conversation at a soda 
fountain one hot, sultry day in 
Dayton between a high school 
biology teacher named John 
Scopes and his friend George 
Rappelyea, a mining engineer. 

Rappelyea suggested that 
Scopes make a test case of a 
new state law which forbade the 
teaching of Darwin's theory of 
evolution. It would be interesting 
to see what the result would be, 
and besides it might result in 
a little publicity for the little 
town of Dayton. 

When Scopes agreed, the case 
snowballed into the equivalent of 
a three-ring circus. As William 
Jennings Bryan volunteered to 
handle the prosecution and 
Clarence Da now the defense, re- 
porters and writers like H. L. 
Mencken, Will Rogers and Bugs 



Baer poured into Dayton to re- 
port the colorful affair for the 
nation's press and build interest 
in the case' to a white heat. 

William Jennings Bryan had 
been a popular hero since 1896 
when he had made his famous 
"cross of gold" speech. By 1925 
he had been nominated three 
times for the presidency and his 
repeated rejection by the public 
had turned him into a pompous 
shell. But his stand on the silver 
standard and his championship 
of the cause of Fundamentalism 
(he at one time had offered $100 
to any university professor who 
would sign an affidavit saying 
that he personally was descended 
from an ape) still held a wide- 
spread following. 

Clarence Darrow was the 
Chicago attorney who had just 
headed the defense in the cele- 
brated Leopold-Loeb case and 
had achieved national prominence 
for brilliance, wit and integrity 
as a tria; lawyer. 

The "monkey trial" was 
brought to a halt when the judge 
refused to let the defense pro- 
duce additional scientific testi- 
mony, and Scopes was found 
guilty and fined $100. A Balti- 
more newspaper paid the fine, and 
Scopes sank back into thankful 
obscurity as a geologist in 
another state.

Wheeler Dorm has 
telephone trouble 

Wheeler House has only one 
phone for two bundled men and 
a housemother. This telephone is 
on a campus line and when it 
was first installed, it was unre- 
stricted. 

The 1'niversity and Telephone 
Company, in failing to restrict 
the phone to local calls, allowed 
the residents to call any place in 
the I mied States free of charge. 
Since one of the students in the 
dorm not caught placing a long 
distance call, the phone is now 
restricted. 

Mr Harry Hugill who is in 
charge of the University's util- 
ities Stated that Wheeler House 
will have two pay telephones by 
February. The housemother will 
have a phone of her own.

Bullets and ballots 

Yesterday, American voters went to the 
polls in an non-presidential year election. Al- 
though accurate figures have not been tabu- 
lated, it seems safe to predict, on the basis 
of previous elections that less than 45# of 
the eligible voters will cast ballots. 

While the ballots were being tabulated 
•in America yesterday, the first returns were 
already in from Cuba, a small country under; 
the dictatorship of Fulgencio Batista. Early 
estimates placed the percentage of eligible 
voters casting ballots at 80-46%, a figure 
comparable to the United States. 

The difference in comparison comes, 
however, when we consider that the Cubans 
were voting despite threats to their lives 
from rebel leader, Fidel Castro. 

It is at times like this that we begin to 
wonder whether, we, as American citizens, 
are capable of fulfilling our responsibilities 
and duties. D.M.C. 



Warm and dry 

Tonight a motion comes up before the 
Student Senate which will have a direct bear- 
ing on approximately 1200 of our under- 
grmduate students. This refers to the "Warm 
and Dry" proposal submitted by Senator 
Armstrong. 

The motion, if passed, will reroute the 
Dining Commons' Lines 2 and 3 so that the 
Btudents will not be forced to brave the ele- 
ments in order to obtain their daily susten- 
ance. While not eliminating the necessity 
of standing in line it will at least ameliorate 
the conditions under which one must wait. 

This motion is particularly relevant now, 
with the ons. 1 of wintry weather as evi- 
denced by the last few days. It is expected 
that by keeping the center doors closed, the 
cyclonic winds which now roar up the stair- 

11s. stiffening necks, chilling bodies, and 
cooling food, will also be curlx-d. 

All in all, this motion seems to have the 
Welfare of the students in mind and presents 
at least a temporary solution for a very un- 
comfortable problem. R.G.P. 



In my inaugural mUnM ©f October 24th, 1954, I said, "No human 
activity U nonpartisan in nature as public higher education is as de- 
serving of partisan support." I still believe in the philosophy AND 
application of that statement. 

The University of Massachusetts can NEVER be a political or 
patronage institution in its admission policy, Ra personnel policy, its 
curricula, its philosophy, or its programs, and hold its head up with 
reputable institutions of higher learning, either private or public. Our 
only currency here is the type of educated citizen we graduate. 

Whether the President can be an individual, an educator, and a 
citizen, PUKLICLY and PRIVATELY, in support of parties and 
p.uple of partv who support the GENERAL development of the 
University, and all other public higher education in the Common- 
wealth, may be debatable to some. It is NOT to me. 

The writer from the Class of *62 cannot be expected to know the 
facts about his comments over the past five years, and even under 
other Presidents. The Cotkgim editorial commentator obviously didn't 
bother to ascertain them. 

On a "tit for tat" basis, someone may be interested in reviewing 
Kinescope and other appearances made by me backing the Herter 
University support record in general, and the Republican guberna- 
torial candidate in particular, Lt. Governor Whittier, during the last 
campaign when his Excellency Governor Furcolo was the Democratic 
contender. At that time some controversy over University appropria- 
tions by Democratic friends of the University brought comments in 
the House of the General Court that "Mather was a biased Republican 
appointed by Governor Herter." The first comment I quietly squelched 
by referring the people concerned to "Who's Who in America" where 
for the past six years I have been rather printedly listed as a Demo- 
crat—which by party affiliation I still am. The second statement I 
cleared by noting that the President of the University is selected and 
appointed by the Board of Trustees NOT the Governor. The tides of 
political controversy are ever thus. 

The record of the past five years, however, is abundantly clear. 
Each year the University has been generously and increasingly sup- 
ported, more so than under any previous administration. The support 
has come from a bipartisan legislature. Democratic in the House and 
Republican in the Senate. But both parties in both divisions have 
backed the expansion and development of the University on a broad 
public education basis. And the successive Governors were of different 
parties during this period. Surely no rational Republican legislator 
or administrator opposes or will oppose the program of a reputable 
and improving public institution because its chief administrator is 
declaredly of opposite political affiliation. This is still America and 
not a "guilt-by-;association-gestapo," I think. 

I shall continue to support publicly or privately, in or out of cam- 
paign any party or person of party pledged to the principle of de- 
velopment of public education opportunity at the University. 

I shall oppose publicly and privately any interference with ad- 
ministration of that program ju
